Droplets by Meaghan Rauscher
TO SPROUT FINS AND SWIM WITH MERFOLK SOUNDS LIKE A DREAM. BUT TO LISSIE DARROW IT IS A NIGHTMARE…
One night on an annual cruise with her family, Lissie is standing on the deck of her father’s fishing boat when she begins to hear a strange murmur across the surface of the ocean. The voice rises and falls with her own, dancing in and out of her hearing, but before she can get a glimpse of the creature it disappears into the depths of the ocean with a shimmery flash.
The next evening throws her family in the midst of a horrific storm. Lissie is swept overboard and all hope is lost until she comes face to face with a dark-haired merman. She is saved, but the cost is her future. The merman transforms her into a mermaid, with the ability to both sprout fins and walk on land; she now finds herself a captive of the dark merman and flees into the night.
When Lissie ends up on a stranded island and meets its sole inhabitant, the handsome and mysterious Patrick, she begins to realize that meeting the dark merman was not a mere twist of fate.
But if it was destined, why is Patrick’s past entangled with her future?
And just what does Patrick have to do with the dark merman who haunts her nightmares…
Guys, I know that I usually give books 5 stars. It’s because I just have never found a bad book. But this one definitely deserved those 5 stars! Droplets is one of the best debut books I have ever read! The writing was just fantastic, I was actually surprised that this was Meaghan’s first novel! Her descriptions were so vivid that I felt as if I were standing right there watching the story unfold before my eyes.
I simply couldn’t put the book down! Each chapter pulled me in deeper and deeper.
This story has everything: action, drama, suspense, and even had a love story! (Y’all, I seriously ship Patrick & Lissie!!!) Each character was so well developed. They each had some type of hidden past that kept every moment or conversation they had with Lissie so intriguing. Loved this new take on mermaids, like how they can control their powers and walk on land. This was the first mermaid book I have read, and it definitely has me hooked. The plot, the characters, everything. I loved it all! Can’t wait to read the sequel!
I recommend any person who loves a great YA book to read this fantastic book! So go buy this amazing book, link at the top of post!
I was sent this book by the author in exchange for my honest review. 🙂 Thank you for sending me this, Meaghan!
