One day, succumbing to the pull of the water on her heart, she dives in and swims out to a distant rock, where a shark attacks her, pulling her deeper and deeper into the inky depths. Suddenly, Garrid appears out of nowhere, fending off the shark and quickly whisking Kristella to the surface and back to shore, where he mysteriously heals her leg merely by his touch. But Kristellas extraordinary journey is just beginning- as she soon finds out that both Garrid and herself are mermaids-and vampires. Aware of her existence, werewolves are hot on her trail, and Garrid must help Kristella return to the water during the next eclipse before the werewolves can find and kill her. As surprising as it is entertaining, Krista Eversons debut novel is a welcomed addition to the vampire lexicon. Avoiding the reliance on the prurient elements the teen vampire genre has long become accustomed to, Kristellas journey instead focuses on smart plotting, dynamic twists and turns, and solid character work to create a compelling and dramatic narrative. Steeped in the lore of both mermaids and vampires, their race against time is rich in detail and firmly rooted in time and place, all the while pressing forward with heart-pounding precision. Remember takes no prisoners as it takes the genre to the next level with new bloodlines and an intermingling of history, exploring the intricacies of identity, of what makes us who we are, and what lengths we will go to in order to be true to the calling of our nature.
