Uninterested in herForbidden to set foot in the ocean, the big battered house at the beach is the last place seventeen year old Alair expected to spend the summer before senior year. A champion swimmer, Alair can’t understand the reasoning behind her father’s strange and peculiar rules regarding the ocean. Not until she finds out the mysterious way her mother died at sea. Uninterested in her mother's family, and even more annoyed at being separated from her friends, Alair will do anything in her power to speed up the renovation project and sale of the old house so she can return to civilization as she knows it. Attempting to make the best of the summer, Alair and her twin brother befriend a group of locals, who unbeknownst to them are members of a coven of warlocks descending from the original Salem witches. Youthful appearing yet centuries old, Jeremiah is shocked to find Alair to be the spitting image of his long lost love Alida, the girl who got away. As Jeremiah finds himself falling for Alair, questions about Alida’s mysterious disappearance centuries before begin to resurface. Torn between her desire to go home and her growing feelings for Jeremiah, Alair becomes increasingly confused when antique items with the name Alida begin to appear in the old family beach house. When Alair stumbles upon a journal from 1693 detailing the Merlock War, a war between the Merpeople and the Warlocks, Alair believes it to be a work of fiction. That is, until she finds out that the author, Alida, had left her home in the sea for a dashing young warlock by the name of Jeremiah Landon. As the world as she knows it comes crashing down around her, Alair can’t help but wonder what ties her family has to Alida, and if meeting Jeremiah was a coincidence after all. Caught between romance and the secrets of her mother’s family, Alair finds herself in the center of a supernatural war between the Merpeople and the Warlocks. As she fights against an evil Warlock to save her life Alair begins to realize where she comes from, and just who she can trust. Is falling for Jeremiah a betrayal to her family? Or will true love prevail? ...

I fell in love with the story's whole trama, although I found it hard at the beginning to really focus on the story but once I got to the middle of the book I couldn't bring myself to put it down.The characters are very well developed and I really liked how each one of them has an important part thought the whole book.Also, you could get lost in the way some chapters are narrated since the narrator is often changing form one character to another and also each chapter is on different time lapses, so if you get caught into the book, as myself, just carefully check you're understanding who's saying what, and most importantly WHEN are they saying it.Finally I would like to recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a little mystery, a little romance and most of all: a good adventure. Rating: 4/5 stars.**To read FULL review head to my bookblog! https://vandbrooks.wixsite.com/bookvi... **
Really liked this book. Reminded me of Twilight in the respect that there is a love story entwined with supernatural beings. But for once, thank goodness, not vampires! This was an easy read, but I was really enthralled in the storyline- the author kept me wanting more- wanting to find out just what was going to happen. Looking forward to reading the next part in the series! I will definitely recommend this to others.
Loved it!This is a book about magic, love, and living life to the fullest! I love the way the author described the two villains to us, and she definitely left us to dwell on the mystery of if they died and who else could be put there. I can't wait to learn more about the mer people in the next book and find out what happens when and if alair goes into the ocean! I will defiantly tell all my friends about this read!
