Submerging (Swans Landing, #2)

Sixteen years ago, Sailor Mooring’s mother dove into the Atlantic Ocean and was never seen again. Now, Sailor is following her mother’s long swim to find answers to the questions that have haunted her life: Why did her mother leave? And what really happened the night Sailor’s father died?

Callum Murchadh has spent the last five years banished from his home and his people. At nineteen, he now lives a human life in the northern islands of Scotland, where maintaining a quiet existence is crucial to keeping his secrets hidden.

But having a finfolk girl step off the ferry and into his life was the last thing he expected.

Sailor finds herself both drawn to Callum and frightened by his warnings. He may hold the clues she needs to reach the ancestral home of her people, but knowing whether to trust him isn’t easy.

Dive deeper into the world of the finfolk in Submerging, the second book in the Swans Landing series.

I received this ebook from the author in exchange for an honest review. I also read the first book Surfacing and you can read that review here.

I really enjoyed this book. The pace was set perfectly and I think I have a bit of a crush on Callum. I love when authors have the ability to make you fall in the love with characters and Shana Norris did just that. 

This book starts off almost right when the last ended and we get a switch in the main character. Meet Sailor: she was a bratty, bull-headed, fiery young mermaid. She is put to the test in this book with her step-brother Josh alongside for the journey. Those two make a great team and worked really well together. Then Callum comes and helps them along. Sailor starts feeling drawn to our handsome mysterious young man. Can she trust him? Or not? You HAVE to read this book to find out. It's intense and fast paced and made me sit down and read it in one sitting. Seriously.. go get this book! You won't regret it.
