Genre: YA urban fantasy graphic novel

Confession: I am a sucker for anything that promises to have mermaids or has to do with Atlantis. So when I saw the cover of this graphic novel on Netgalley, I didn't need any more information before I hit that request button.

Mer tells the story of Aryn, who has moved to a new city with her dad and sister a few months after her mother passed away. She isn't pleased about it, but meets some kids at school that befriend her pretty quickly. What she doesn't know is that they have some dangerous secrets...

What I liked about it:

  1. I liked the mer-people aspect, obviously. 
  2. It was a fast read.
  3. It was about mer-people. That came from Atlantis.

What I didn't like about it:

  1. The characters were really under-developed.
  2. The story was really typical, it didn't do much that was unexpected.
  3. The dialogue was quite awkward, it just didn't feel like how people actually talk.

I wouldn't recommend buying it, but if you see it at the library and you want to stay occupied for a half hour, I'd pick it up. 

I received a digital copy of this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
