Flukes

Flukes - Nichole Chase Flukes was the first book I ever read about mermaids -- well, merpeople in general, not to discriminate. I discovered author Nichole Chase through a young lady who used to work for me in my past lifetime working at a bookstore. She got me hooked on Chase's Dark Betrayal trilogy and I've been following Chase ever since. I admit that when I first heard what Flukes was about, I wrote off the book, thinking I had no interest in mermaids. But for some reason I just kept coming back to it and decided to download a copy. I am so glad I did -- now I can't wait for the sequel!What I liked:~ The characters: Meena and Blake are beautifully drawn with enough detail that I felt like I actually knew them, not to mention I actually cared about what happened to them. You'll also meet some other interesting people and merfolk along the way.What I didn't like: ~ The book was too short! I would have loved to have seen more of the story fleshed out a bit. Everything blew by so quickly the resolution just felt a bit too swift. Honestly, there could have been a little bit more conflict.What I LOVED:~ Mermaids as the "supernatural" creatures: Hooray for a change from vampires, werewolves, and the like!!!Who should read this:~ Anyone who is looking for a book with "non-humans" other than vampires, werewolves, and shapeshifters, but still wants that otherworldly element. ~ Readers of YA/New Adult fiction who enjoy their romance mixed with the supernatural~ Fans of Chase's other books
