Mers by Ami Blackwelder: A Book Review

Book Description

 December 21, 2013
What lies beneath the surface?
One hundred years from now the world has
changed and brought with it new forms of life.
Who are the Mers? Who is Mira?

“I am not a Mer,” A simple but profound statement that changes Mira’s life forever. She always knew she was different. She never quite fit in with the Mers. However, when her quest to understand her past leads her across the border that divides two vastly different worlds, she thinks the journey to find out who she really is will be an easy one.

But, in Jersey she finds more questions than answers. The “Garden State” has become a convoluted mix of Aristocrats who hate the Mers, Pirates who want to sell them, and Magi who want to use them, finding her true identity will be a challenge, especially when her traveling companion is a Mer willing to fight to the death.


This was my first book from this author, and I found that I really enjoyed it. The character development progressed quickly and interestingly. I was pleasantly surprised at the twists and turns that occurred throughout the story, and am really looking forward to reading more in this series. It was definitely a new take on mermaids and/or the dystopian universe. Very well done!!

Overall, 4/5 stars.

Here is the link to for the ebook.
