Sixteen-year-old Pearl Poseidon ran away from the circus tired of her adoptive parents’ abuse of her special skills. As a runaway, she craves anonymity but when she saves a small boy from drowning she draws attention to herself and her special abilities. Boardwalk employee and aspiring investigative reporter, Chase Thomas, helps her with the rescue and witnesses her amazing dive. 
Now, he has questions. And so do the police. 
Unbeknownst to Pearl, a battle rages under the Pacific between Loyal and Non-Loyal Atlantean forces and each side wants to use her powers for their cause. Will the commotion in the ocean expose her secrets to the world? Will Chase’s reporter-determination ruin their chance for a real relationship? Will staying near the ocean she loves catapult into a battle royale?
This would be my second dive into the mermaid world. I honestly thought I only like it cause of the Author who wrote it. Allie Burton has shown me the light that I just damn well like reading about “mermaids”.
I Love the way Allie took the mermaid myth and toss it out to a point. I am not giving anything away. Read the Book peoples!  I can’t wait to get my hands on the rest of this series.
My One draw back is that Pearl could be bit of a complaining whining pain in the tush. I would have to remind myself that Pearl is 16 yr old runaway trying to deal with stuff. So after going back and forth on 4 to 5 stars rating. I decided 5 stars, cause by golly it earned 5 stars!!
