This is the first in a new planned trilogy from Hocking.
Gemma Fisher loves swimming.A new trio of girls in town also seem to love swimming, but Gemma feels uncomfortable around them.It’s not because they’re totally gorgeous, or fearless, or have every guy in sight drooling over them.There’s something a little off about them – which Gemma finds out, all too personally, on one fateful night.Now she must make a choice between staying with her family and friends, or entering a new world filled with danger and dark hungers.
From the Teen Librarian: I didn’t really enjoy this book.While I liked the mythology behind the supernatural parts of it, I didn’t really like Gemma as a character, and I thought the trio was way over the top.I didn’t like how Gemma was forced into her choice, and I especially didn’t like the total cliffhanger ending (seriously, nothing is resolved).I’m not too sure I’ll be reading the second book in the series.I can only give this one a 3 out of 10. What did you think?
