Description

"Epic, musical, and tender." -- Kirkus Reviews

Can't You Hear It, Talia? Can't You Hear the Waves Singing?

Sixteen-year-old Talia was born to a life of certainty and luxury, destined to become Empress of half the world. But when an ambitious rival seizes power, she and her mother are banished to a nowhere province on the far edge of the Northern Sea.

It is here, in the drafty halls of the Ruen Dahr, that Talia discovers family secrets, a melancholy boy with a troubling vision of her future, and a relic that holds the power of an ancient Star. On these shores, the eerie melody of the sea is stronger than ever, revealing long forgotten tales of the Goddess Rahn. The more dark truths that Talia unravels about the gods' history--and her own--the more the waves call to her, and it's her destiny to answer.

At its heart, BENEATH THE HAUNTING SEA is a story of how far one is willing to go for the ones they love. We see this in Talia’s brave search for her mother, trapped in the evil sea goddess Rahn’s Hall of the Dead, and in Wen’s loyal refusal to leave her side. I’m always attracted to books with a thread of mystical magic woven in, and a healthy dose of music, and this book has both. Meyer weaves together music, myth, and emotion so seamlessly, one can almost forget this is her debut novel. As a writer myself, I often find myself pulled out of stories, critiquing the author’s use of plot points, moments when characters make decisions I feel they shouldn’t, based on their established actions. From the first paragraph, SEA dragged me to the depths of the sea to dance forever with the Billow Maidens, and I never wanted to let go.
