    This book was in the children's section of my library, not YA, children's. Sure it's small and short with big print and plenty of space between the lines, but it packs a big punch. This book isn't all dialogue and happy fru fru fantasy, there is danger, death, thievery, and magic. If you read this to your child and they understand all the words then you have a pretty smart child. The writing style is great, the vocabulary is impressive, and the story is heartfelt.

This book does not assume that children are stupid, it challenges them. As an adult I can honestly say I love these books. I can't wait to read the third one this weekend. Corwin can be a bit annoying at times, but then again so can Nia. It just makes them all the more believable and real. This world is easy to get engrossed in, and I highly recommend it for all ages.

    Genre: fantasy Summary: This story continues the journey of Nia who is trying to save her hometown of Atlantis from a power-hungry, mad mermyd and his companion Farworlder.

The shell is stolen by the evil King Vortigern so Nia and Corwin must work together to save the shell and try to defeat Ma'el, the destroyer of Atlantis (he also has plans to take over the rest of the world, covered in water or not) Response: I liked this book as much as the first one. It was ok as far as series goes, but I just can't ignore the nagging sense of sadness. I don't have the third and final book of the series with me right now, which means I have to wait to see how everything ends. BOo. The series has been pretty subtle with the hints at the Arthurian legend, but the hints are getting more and more evident. I hope everything turns out well!

    This book was just okay. The writing left a lot to be desired, especially because this book was based on land and not in the mythical city of Atlantis. The location meant that the author didn't really have anything special or new to show the reader, so the focus on the simplistic writing was more acute. Her grammar was fine, but it was very juvenile, even for a young adult book. I hope the next one is better. This book was just okay.

    I didn't like this book nearly as much as the first one in the series. I suppose I really, REALLY liked Ascension, and it would've been hard to beat. But I was still hoping! As much as I like Corwin, I would've preferred that the book was from Nia's perspective, at least for part of the book. I don't really have anything else to add? I will definitely be reading the third book, 'Transformation' to see how the series ends, but, after the first one was so fantastic, 'Reunion' disappointed me.

    This is a pretty typical fantasy story even if it appears not to be because of the strange way that humans and Atlantians are organized. Still, it begins to make more sense as the story goes on so that the boy and girl are brought together to be one (although its uncertain how this will play out, romantically or otherwise). The first story seemed to be a strong indication that females can be validated and otherwise not validating capable females would lead to disaster.

The first story seemed to be a strong indication that females can be validated and otherwise not validating capable females would lead to disaster. This book appears to say that a female in distress needs a male, that men and women can be for each other to find solutions to saving civilization, life and family.

    I don't dislike this book, but I also don't think it's on par with the other two books in the series. We see the introduction of Corwin and follow his perspective only. I think losing Nia's point of view really lowers the reader's interest in the events as they unfold. Overall, it's an okay book in an otherwise great series.

    The first part of the book was hard to get into but once Corwin met up with Nia things got much more interesting. Overall, I liked how this book finished up and am excited to read the final installment! Especially since I remember how it all wraps up.

    This book was better than the first one in the series. It introduced a new main character while also keeping the old main character, which I liked.

    I'll admit, I was a bit hesitant to read this one. The beginning was very slow, as I'm not a big historical fantasy fan, and the entire first quarter of the book was the typical medieval story. But once Nia showed back up, the story got rolling and I was hooked once more. I stayed up late, knowing I had school in the morning, just to keep reading, and the next day I was still reading it every spare chance I got.

While I loved the first book, Ascension, more, I loved Reunion for many different reasons. I have to say, Nia is one of my favorite - if not already my favorite - mermaid heroines. She is brave and daring, standing up to defy even barbaric kings in a mission to save her people. I sense a budding romance between her and Corwin. I wonder where that's going to go... All in all, it was a fantastic read, not as good as the first, but a welcome addition to the Water Trilogy. I'm definitely sinking back into the third and final book, Transformation, and I can't wait to see how all the action, twists, and turns unfold to create the book's explosive conclusion. So definitely check out Reunion if you're a mermaid or historical fantasy fan!

    1.5 Stars - I don't think I have ever been more disappointed in a sequel. The story felt cluttered and rushed. I knew that this story would take place on land and that it might not seem as interesting or unique as Atlantis, but still. I really did not like the direction the story went (idea wise, it didn't seem very well thought out). There also seemed to be too many inconsistencies. Nia suddenly knew things that was explicitly stated in the first book that she did NOT know (like what it is like 1.5 Stars - I don't think I have ever been more disappointed in a sequel.

Nia suddenly knew things that was explicitly stated in the first book that she did NOT know (like what it is like being an Avatar, how to use magic, and how to complete the naming ceremony). I can understand that she may have a better knowledge of things now that she is joined to a Farworlder, but it still seemed over the top. The characters lacked depth. I did not like Corwin at all. Nia seemed like a completely different character, and not in the "she has been through alot and is different" kind of way. I think I might have enjoyed the book much better if it had been written from her point of view rather than Corwin's. I know that this (and the first book) are geared to a younger audience, but this book felt especially juvenile. The only reason I gave it an extra half star, is because the epilogue was interesting and peaked my curiosity. It lessened the otherwise bad taste the book left in my mouth.

    Life in Wales in the year 425 is hard, but for the sixteen years of his life, Corwin has managed to survive through hard work. He never knew his father, and barely remembers his mother. He was raised by Fenwyck, a traveling entertainer who on occasion turned to thievery. But now Fenwyck is dead, killed by the evil King Vortigern, and Corwin himself is a wanted man.

But now Fenwyck is dead, killed by the evil King Vortigern, and Corwin himself is a wanted man. Hiding in a cave by the shore, Corwin discovers a beautiful and unique shell. He hopes he can make a fortune selling it, but it is stolen from him by the King's men. Corwin then encounters Nia, a mysterious girl who says she is from the lost city of Atlantis. Nia is determined to get the shell back, because it is the key to her survival, and, as it turns out, Corwin's as well. Can Nia and Corwin outwit King Vortigern in time to save their own lives? I've been eager to read this book ever since I read the first in the Water trilogy, and I was not disappointed. Kara Dalkey is a wonderful author and I can't wait to read the final book in the series, Transformation.

In this part of the trilogy, Corwin, the shell and Nia are all joined together in ways that are moderately interesting to read. This tale didn't entrance me the first way did, because I felt as if I already knew what the land-dwellers had to offer. The king was just as corrupt as Ma'el said he would be, Ma'el was a terribly constructed villain and nobody seemed to have any true motivation. In this sequel, the reader gets to go through too many pages of cliff hangers, unnecessary barricades, and eventual triumph in the last twenty pages.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I like this sequel; more action from the protagonist, and more of the little prince. I like the change of MC, too, and I think that would make the series overall appealing to both genders. It's also interesting to see Nia through someone else's eyes - that new POV is refreshing, and this world is fantastic! [spoiler] As for Corwin's bloodline, I kind of expecting him to be the child of a wizard, but I think a mermyd fits better hahaha.

    Definitely a far cry from the last book. SOOOO much building building and building. While enjoyable for the most part, this is sad. The minor triumphs they have are played up too much and their failures are passed over. What annoyed me now that they are joined to Gobaith is the constant internal dialogue- really reminiscent of Dune. While I understand why it's there, it's just not done well.

    This is a book about a mermyd, a faraworlder, and a lad-dweller all meeting each other. But they are not just meeting each other- Tthey become JOINED. One cannot survive without the other. It is hard enough to keep themselveds alive, but carrying the lives of THREE? Thus book is sure to take an exciting turn- for better or worse. Read this book, but not yet. Read the first one of thins series. THEN, read this one. :D

    This wasn't as engaging as the first book in the trilogy. (This is part of the reason it took so long to finish. The other part being distracted by Avengers fanfic...) Partly because it takes place on land, so until the plot gets going (and there's a lot of set-up), there's not much to distract you from the lack of plot. (Whereas there was so much world building in the first you hardly noticed.) The third book takes place in the water again, and therefore promises to be more interesting.

    THESE TRILOGY books are SOO GOOD. kinda cheezy yes, but hey what is wrong with that. its kina a mermaid thing but it plays into a bit of camalot and that whole story. Mostly a scifi with a touch of romance. weird but SOOOO GOOD. ive read them at least three times. but whatever you do, do not read the back of the books because they sound so stupid.

    Well, I'm still liking the characters and the plot. I still think this books as some more than pg13 moments - *coughcough* that overly long kissing scene - and I really like that the Penndragons were mention as I love the Arthurian tales, but I have a feeling I won't hear any more of them. Can't wait to get to book three. Well, I'm still liking the characters and the plot.
