The Pearl Wielder Trilogy #1 by Hannah Reed
When I first started reading Tenebrasco I thought I had a book in my hands that sort of resembled “The little Mermaid” on steroids. But just a little bit in, I happily realised it wasn’t.
Hannah Reed did a wonderful job creating a detailed underwater world. It keeps up with our real life modern day technology, while still maintaining a mystic layer that sets it apart from the world out of the water.
The book follows the viewpoint of Princess April who is the heir to the throne of the seven seas. The Mer(maid) people have special powers that are strengthened by certain pearls. And while there are 9 different powers in total, most Mer can’t wield them all. Yet April can, and she’s stronger than she should be for her Mer-age.
