Celia Reynolds is the youngest in a set of triplets and the one with the least valuable power. Anne can see the future, and Jane can see the present, but all Celia can see is the past. And the past seems so insignificant -- until Celia meets Lo.

Lo doesn't know who she is. Or who she was. Once a human, she is now almost entirely a creature of the sea -- a nymph, an ocean girl, a mermaid -- all terms too pretty for the soulless monster she knows she's becoming. Lo clings to shreds of her former self, fighting to remember her past, even as she's tempted to embrace her dark immortality.

When a handsome boy named Jude falls off a pier and into the ocean, Celia and Lo work together to rescue him from the waves. The two form a friendship, but soon they find themselves competing for Jude's affection. Lo wants more than that, though. According to the ocean girls, there's only one way for Lo to earn back her humanity. She must persuade a mortal to love her . . . and steal his soul.

Admittedly, I started reading this book over a year ago and shamefully put it down. After reading the first chapter, I became upset....What? the author blended the first two book beautifully. Now we go from wolves to mermaids? Anywhoo, I decided to pick it back up yesterday and I am so glad I did. The book does tie in with the other two, you just have to read further to figure it out. It is a bit slow to start but not yawn worthy by any means and the perfect amount of detail.

*SLIGHT SPOILER* the beautiful Lo that lives in the water now is the sister to one of our characters in Sweetly. 

Moving on to book four now, good things expected.
