So, here we are at the finale of the Waterfire saga. I’ll admit when I read the first book three years ago I didn’t expect to like it, let alone love it. Donnelly’s under water world was amazing. It was like being immersed in a foreign country on top of a high stakes adventure. She was extremely committed to creating entire world below the water. It wasn’t half-assed with a couple of cities here and there. She had new words, slang words, and a whole history plotted out. In the final leg of our journey we see the six girls, or merls, bracing up for the final showdown. This is the moment where all the questions are answered and the evil doers should have to pay for their crimes. The six are fighting to unite the salt waters and the fresh waters against Sera’s treacherous, murderous uncle— Vallerio— and Astrid’s demented, evil, murderous descendant Orfeo. Also, there’s a giant monster with multiple arms, eyes in his palms, and is made up entirely of souls of people who were brutally murdered by Orfeo. What could go wrong?
