Book Review: Florence(Florence Waverley bk1) by Ciye Cho

( I Received this free ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)

Goodreads summary: 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.

I haven't read to much of mermaid books and they haven't really brought much interest to me but I really enjoyed reading this one.  At first it did start out slow then it picked up towards the middle. 

Florence is quite and is to herself.  She feels that there is no place where she can be herself or where she can fit in. Her mother does not make it any better.  While on a field trip she is kidnapped by a mermaid and is introduced to their world.  I really like Florence character and how she changed from the girl that we knew in the beginning to growing into her own towards the end. 

This book is field with adventures, a love triangle, and other mysteries that take place.  The plot was written well and it was a really nice read.
