Anyways, onto my review….
Summary: Emily Windsnap is a semi-mermaid, which means that when she goes into water she becomes a mermaid, and when she’s on land she’s a human. So one day, she and her friend Aaron(who’s a semi-merman) were just swimming around when they were captured in fish nets…and were brought to the palace of Neptune, King of the Sea. Neptune has been having vivid nightmares causing dangerous storms, but Neptune is sure that they aren’t just nightmares, they’re memories, but he can’t remember anything about them. He is sure they are a threat so he wants Emily and Aaron to go to the Land of the Midnight Sun, a land where the sun never sets, yet it is bitterly cold. There he hopes they can find and defeat the threat. But they would never imagine they would find Neptune’s evil twin brother Njord…Can Emily and Aaron defeat him along with the help of their friends Shona and Millie?
My Thoughts: I really like Liz Kessler’s books, and this one was just awesome as her other ones! It had a good plot, but was confusing at points. There was very good details and description. I wish there was more of Shona in this book, but she was still a really good supporting character. Archie was really mean, and I don’t get how Millie trusted him, but he was really well-developed. His actions were so sneaky, but well written! The narwhal was so nice, and it made me so sad when Emily forgot about him:( He was so nice, and I want to know what happened to him! Emily and Aaron are so cute together! You feel bad for both of them when they broke up, but it’s really sweet when they make up:) Njord was pure evil! His evil scheme was just so…evil! I totally understand why Neptune froze him! Neptune was softer in this book, but I wish his character was developed a little more. Mr. Beeston was really clueless, but he acted like he was more important than everyone, so he was pretty funny. (And, could you imagine having to go to the really cold island? I would seriously never survive!) I definitely hoping for a sixth book, but for now I will await the release of Liz Kessler’s next book North Of Nowhere! I also just wanted to say how cool all the Emily Windsnap covers are! The sparkle and shimmer, and have lots of texture. The art work through out the book is simply amazing, and I give this book four out of five stars!
