Florence by Ciye Cho
Seventeen-year-old Florence Waverley is out of her depth. Literally. Kidnapped and taken below the waves to the mer world of Niemela, she is the ultimate gift for merman Prince Kiren: a human familiar tied to his side. But nothing is what it seems amid the beauty and danger of a dark ocean.
Every Niemelan has a role to play, from the mermaids who weave towers out of kelp to the warriors who fight sea monsters. But in trying to survive, Florence will end up in the middle of a war between the mer and the Darkness. A conflict that will push her between two brothers: Kiren, the charmer inexplicably drawn to both her and the monsters; and Rolan, the loner who has been pushing her away since the day they met. But in order to take a stand–and find out where she belongs–Florence will have to risk it all: her life, her heart… and her very soul.
Amazing and wonderful are two words that come to mind when you think about Florence by Ciye Cho. It has been several days since I finished this wonderful book and I am still thinking about it. Mr. Cho did a beautiful job creating and describing a world that is so unlike our own. From the very beginning this descriptive story takes a hold of you and doesn’t let go.
Florence is a unique story about a girl, named Florence, who is kidnapped and taken to live among the merpeople in Niemela. Before she was kidnapped she was very insecure and a bit sad sounding. In Niemela, she grows and develops into a wonderful character who you would like to be friends with.
Florence is a Pranormal YA adventure that I recommend to everyone. It is a truly an enjoyable story that both teens and adults will fall in love with.
