Beneath the Surface Beneath the Surface by Sierra Terry
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

On a seemingly normal night, Jonas, a kind-hearted knight, saves a beautiful young woman from a vicious attack. He quickly finds out the young woman is actually a mermaid and as she disappears into the water Jonas vows to find her again, so taken by her mere presence. However, ever since they crossed paths Jonas began having strange ominous dreams about her, making him want to see her again even more. What do these dreams mean and why is he having them all the time? These are just some of the questions Jonas seeks answers to but all he really wants is a chance to make her his special lady.

This was an interesting read. I liked the characters and the overall plot idea. The story moved at a moderate pace and had a few interesting elements i.e. the illustrations. While I could not connect with Hime's plight, I did tap into Jonas. Hime was quite the unlikable being. I would be mindful of grammatical errors. One thing that confused me was the time period. While I thought it was a period piece with kings, queens, knights, etc. , there was indoor plumbing i.e. the bathtub with buttons to start the water flow. This came across as a modern touch. The story wrapped up nicely with a fitting end for all (good and bad) involved. I think this was a good addition to the series. A solid 3.5.
