- ARC Review: Waterfell (The Aquarathi, #1) by Amalie Howard
Combine mermaid with aliens and some magic and we have the Aquarathi. It was really interesting and really well thought out. I really liked it Not what I was expecting. I really liked it and I can't wait to see more of it. Nerissa was a good heroine.
Unfortunately, she was the weak point of the book for me. For one, in the beginning, I found her selfish and shallow. Later on, she realized that and began to change, so I was able to forgive. But, she also tended to be judgmental and kind of mean at times. Not enough that I disliked her character. I still liked her. But, she annoyed me several times.
And slowed down the plot with her stubbornness. On the other hand, she was also strong and definitely a force to be reckoned with. Overall, I ended up liking her character. Lo was brilliant.

He was so sweet and adorable and utterly swoon-worthy. He was just wonderful. And, don't underestimate him. He has some tricks up his sleeves. I adored him and thought he was perfect. The romance was super sweet, although somewhat hindered by Nerissa's tenacity. I though these two were wonderful together, even more after what happened at the end.
Love this couple. Can't wait to see how things turn out for them.

- Book Review: Waterfell by Amalie Howard.
The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way through. There were some twists and turns that I never saw coming. The secrets that were revealed From the truth about Nerissa's mother to Lo's secret, it was all surprising. And I loved that about this book. The story was wonderful and the ending even better. I can't wait to read the next book and see how things turn out for Nerissa and Finn.
Waterfell was a brilliant YA paranormal romance that took me by surprise. I loved this book and I can't wait to read more from this series. It was just amazing!
YA lovers, if you want something unpredictable and absolutely fantastic, then you definitely have to read this book. Waterfell is not a lot of things. It is not a romance. It is not a mermaid tale.

It not your usual teen book. Waterfell, instead is a book about love, honor, trust and betrayal. It is a book about friendship and loyalty and about being true to who you really are. It is all of those things wrapped up in an action packed book about a race of sea creatures that can morph into human form. It is about Nerissa, their princess, who is living among humans to stay safe from those that killed her father a Waterfell is not a lot of things.
It is about Nerissa, their princess, who is living among humans to stay safe from those that killed her father and want to rule her Kingdom. Narissa has to summon the courage to do the right thing, not just for herself, but for her entire race. As if that is not enough, she has to do it while not falling for a human boy, not losing her best friend and not jeopardizing the lives of those closest to her.

I was sure Waterfell would be a retelling of Andersen's famous fairy tale about mermaid princess who fell in love with a boy and wanted to be human so she could be with him.
Even after first few pages I wasn't sure, everything pointed out to that premise, but quickly I realized I was wrong. Our heroine, Nerissa, is not human but also she is not mermaid no matter the fact that her "natural habitat" is sea and ocean. She goes to high school, has friends, goes out, have guardians and big brother who likes to stick his nose where he shouldn't and, of course, there is hot, new guy. Typical girl, if you ignore the fact that she is a monster. Okay, she is not monster. But you'll have to read the book to figure out things for yourself.
To be honest, plot is quite predictable or maybe it's just me and the fact that I read over hundred books like this so I know what to expect , but what makes it fresh and new is mythology. I enjoyed that part of the story the most, but I wish that Amelie Howard focused more on that aspect of her novel than the romance.watch
Waterfell (Aquarathi, book 1) by Amalie Howard
Some parts have unfinished feeling, but I am guessing that we will find out everything in the sequels. I believe that it won't be a big surprise for most of the readers that central motif of the Waterfell is love. Nerissa and Lo - the almost star crossed lovers. Some parts felt little bit over the top, but on the other hand there were few really hot scenes young adult hot, nothing else.
Typical for this genre and, for me, not so likeable, especially Nerissa who is mostly self-centered and selfish.
ARC Review: Waterfell (The Aquarathi, #1) by Amalie Howard
I didn't find her "transformation" very believable and honest. Lo was okay, I wondered few times how could he go along with all Nerissa's mood changes, but his background was something I didn't predict until the very end. Who should read it? All of you who love young adult paranormal romance novels. I think that younger readers will probably enjoy it more that older ones. May 23, Steph Sinclair marked it as to-read Shelves: release , young-adult , please-dont-disappoint , harlequin.
I've been disappointed by too many "mermaid" books. I hope this one delivers. View all 26 comments. Jul 29, Marissa DeCuir rated it it was amazing. What a brilliant idea for a story!!
