"Awesome lore, thrilling story, and tons of characters to adore...I just loved Awaken!" - Jena of ShortieSays review blog
Running away from home was never Chloe Kowalski's plan. Neither was ending up the target of killers, or having her body change in unusual ways. She only wanted a vacation, someplace far from her crazy parents and their irrational fear of water. She only wanted to do something normal for once, and maybe get to know her best friend's hot stepbrother a bit better at the same time.
But the first day she goes out on the ocean, strange things start to happen. Dangerous things that should be impossible. Things to which 'normal' doesn't even begin to apply.
Now madmen are hunting her. A mysterious guy with glowing blue eyes is following her. And her best friend's stepbrother seems to be hiding secrets all his own.
It was supposed to be a vacation. It's turning out to be a whole lot more.

I read the entire series in about a week and honestly do like the books. I hadn't run into a young adult mermaid story/series before and the underwater city was very interesting. In all honesty, I struggled with two thing though: There seemed to be a great deal of coincidence in some of the dangerous encounters throughout the series (e.g. that particular cabin? getting help at this or that exact moment?). I kept wondering if there was something I was missing about how some of these encounters were possible. The other thing was the consistent use of the word "twitch". It seemed to be abused given the context of the sentences. It really distracted me whenever it was used. Again. I did like these books overall.
Very intriguing and draws you in.
A vacation like no other
Mermaids, dysfunctional families, heroes and villains, oh my!
