“Sea Spell” is the fourth and final book in the Waterfire Saga series and was a great conclusion to an amazing series! It’s filled with beautiful friendships, great characters, action-packed battles, sweet romances and everything else you could want in a final book.
It definitely left me with a bittersweet feeling because I’m going to miss this series. I’ve been following the series from the beginning with DEEP BLUE, and I’ve grown with these characters as they’ve grown through their adventures. These characters are definitely a part of me. Not many series out there can keep readers entertained and excited for every new installment, but Jennifer Donnelly does a great job of that.
My favorite aspect about this book was the growth of Serafina, my favorite character. At the beginning of the series, she was insecure, but now she’s so strong, and powerful—an amazing leader that’s truly a force to be wreckin’ with.
Overall, Sea Spell is an amazing ending to a beautiful, exciting series! The ending does hint to maybe a fifth book, or even a spin-off, and I really hope either or both happen!
At the end of Dark Tide, Book 3 in the Waterfire Saga, Astrid leaves her mermaid friends to confront her ancestor, Orfeo, the evil force behind the rise of the monster Abbadon. Orfeo possesses one of the six talismans that the merls need in order to keep the monster locked up forever. But without the ability to songcast, how will Astrid be able to defeat the most powerful mage in history? Meanwhile, Serafina and her Black Fins train goblin troops for battle against her uncle Vallerio's death riders. Will Sera ever see her beloved home--and her beloved Mahdi--again, or will the Volneros take over the mer realms while Orfeo takes on the gods themselves? Nothing less than the fate of the underwater world is at stake in this breathtaking finale.
