    One thought on “Sea Dweller”

    1. I really liked this book and can't wait to read the rest of the series! Aylen and Sai had some great chemistry and the story was addictingI couldn't put it down. I can't wait to see where the characters progress from here - the characters felt real and not forced, which I loved. I also wanted to smack Faemad I'm really hoping to see her knocked down a peg or twentyAll in alla GREAT readwell worth the time and money invested - Great Job Ms. Atkinson!

    2. I love a good story and this is just that, but better it's a great story. I loved everything about it. I really enjoyed the calm, relaxing first half and how I had no idea what was coming. It was nice to sit and read without constant anticipation. Then the anticipation did build. It was so entertaining and fun! I'm anxious for the next book and hope we don't have to wait too long! :-)

    3. This book reminded me of the books I enjoyed reading as a teenager - fantasy with a fairy tale feel to it. I loved reading it from beginning to end! Melanie Atkinson does an excellent job of exploring each of the main characters, their personalities, and their struggles. The book is an easy read, and I look forward to the next in the series!

    4. I couldn't stop reading! The way Melanie writes, her story just blossoms from the page. It has drawn me in and I'm trapped right there on the island with her characters. So far I've just read what's available on the kindle for iPhone, so i need to get a hold of the rest of it!

    5. Like nothing I have ever readThis was one of the most original stories I have ever read. For me the start was slightly slow but once things started happening, I didn't want to put it down. The story is set on an island where some of the most important things are family and the celebration of where they come from. I loved the relationship between the two main characters. It is how a relationship is supposed to be, they know and rely on each other completely. The center of the story is all about t [...]

    6. I desperately, desperately wanted to like this book more than I did. I wanted to give Sea Dweller a minimum of 4 stars because I am acquainted with the author. Let me start with what I really liked, then explain what happened to crash into 3-star territory.I was dubious with the book's description of a magical stone giving people the ability to exist underwater for an extended period of time. Turns out my imagination took that down the complete wrong path and I was so delighted to fully believe [...]

    7. Melanie Atkinson's "Sea Dweller" is a page-turning adventure tale of the highest order. It's got everything YA readers love: danger, romance, ancient prophecies, a complex plot and characters with special powers. Atkinson presents it all elegantly and believably without resorting to the use of excessive violence or sexual content. The book's creative story line also beats the pants off the glut of vampire-and-werewolf-centered YA adventure stories on the market. Not only is "Sea Dweller" refresh [...]

    8. I really enjoyed this book, and appreciated how clean it was. I'm always happy when the romance isn't the main focus of the book--I'm fine with relationship development, but endless kissing, sparks flying, etc, gets super annoying and inhibits the plot. I particularly loved one line: when they called Haji the annoying sister they never had. (One of my best friends is like a brother to me, and I often tell him that he's my favorite annoying brother I never had.) :) Overall a very enjoyable read-- [...]

    9. Downloaded this book from Smashwords to my phone. A first for me. Engaging storyline and characters. I definitely want to read the next title in the series when it's available.

    10. I know this author personally, she is an awesome person and I really liked this book. I only gave it a 4 because I don't love fantasy. My 11 year old daughter loved it! Way to go Mel!
