Once you’ve been touched by darkness, it never leaves you…

Abandoned by her parents as an infant; seventeen year old Hannah spent her childhood wading through countless foster families until being adopted by the Whitmans three years ago.

Unfortunately, Atlanta’s high society wasn’t quite ready for Hannah…or the strange events that plague her. Chilling visions of murder, unexplained hallucinations, and a dark, mysterious guy who haunts her nightmares all culminate to set in motion a journey of self-discovery that will challenge everything she’s ever believed; not to mention her sanity.

Sent to live at The House of Lorelei on Bald Head Island, NC for ‘kids like her,’ Hannah quickly realizes things are not what they seem. Her fellow ‘disturbed’ teens are actually the descendants of mythical Sea Gods and Goddesses. And so is she.

But when Finn, the ghost from her dreams, appears in the flesh; her nightmares become reality and her dark visions begin coming true. Inexplicably drawn to him, she can’t deny the dangerous hold he has on her heart. The deadly secrets he harbors will ultimately test her courage and push the boundaries of her love.

She must decide if she is ready to embrace the ancient legend she is prophesied to be a part of. The fate of all the descendants will forever depend upon it.

I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

I immediately went to click To Be Read for the whole series on Goodreads upon finishing this book. I’m gonna list down the reasons as to WHY you should read this book and LOVE it.
1) This book is about sea gods and goddesses. I know most books nowadays wrote about Greek Gods. But this particular book actually has Sirens, Nereids and such. I never knew I could learn so much about the legends of sea gods just by reading this book HAHA
2) And this point is important, because this book has a HOT HOT guy. I know most books have too, but I don’t know, this author has a way with words such that I can feel every emotion that Anastasia (the female lead) is feeling everytime she faces Finn. I mean, the way Finn talks, walks, stares. EVERYTHING just exudes hotness. Dangerous, sexy and hot. Has that convinced you yet? No? Read on….
3) There’s cute sea animals! I know that seems redundant, but Anastasia can feel their every emotions; sea turtles, dolphins, seahorses. The interaction scenes with them will make you go AWWWWWWWW.
4) Last but not least, girl bestfriends! I have always absolutely love a good book where a girl can count on her besties. And this girl, Anastasia, has the coolest bestie.
So what are you waiting for? Go read the book, quick! Better yet, buy the whole series! It’s worth it, trust me 😉

  1. I had never heard of this book before but it sounds good and the cover is beautiful! I've never read any book about sea gods and goddesses, but sounds like an interesting read. I really like getting to know more about myths and legends!
