Gorgeous. Fearless. Dangerous. They’re the kind of girls you envy; the kind of girls you want to hate. Strangers in town for the summer, Penn, Lexi and Thea have caught everyone’s attention—but it’s Gemma who’s attracted theirs. She’s the one they’ve chosen to be part of their group.

Gemma seems to have it all—she’s carefree, pretty, and falling in love with Alex, the boy next door. He’s always been just a friend, but this summer they’ve taken their relationship to the next level, and now there’s no going back. Then one night, Gemma’s ordinary life changes forever. She’s taking a late night swim under the stars when she finds Penn, Lexi and Thea partying on the cove. They invite her to join them, and the next morning she wakes up on the beach feeling groggy and sick, knowing something is different.

Suddenly Gemma is stronger, faster, and more beautiful than ever. But her new powers come with a terrifying price. And as she uncovers the truth, she’s is forced to choose between staying with those she loves—or entering a new world brimming with dark hungers and unimaginable secrets.


i started to read this book this summer when i was at the beach and to be honest i LOVED this book. this book is a page turner where not for even one moment i was bored. the vivid description of the characters, the beach and eveything makes you feel that the whole thing is happening in front of you.

i was hooked to the book from the first line and thats why it took me only two days to finish! the cover of the book was amazing and the plot and twist in the story is TOOO good. 

i personally liked the character Gemma cause she is carefree, adventurous and loves water just like me. i also like her chemistry with Alex. 

so if you like myth and adventure you can surely go for this book, i am sure you wont be dissapointed! ( i am desparately waiting to read the second book!!)


PLOT- i LOVED the plot and the whole setting of the theme so  4.5/5 stars

CHARACTER- 4.5/5 (they are all unique in their own way)


COVER- 5/5 ( it looked awesome, main reason why i brought the book)

4.7/5 stars (highly recommended)
