Kurzbeschreibung

Cassandra is an extremely shy girl, who has learned to hide from others, even when she is in a crowd. She keeps her head down to avoid notice, but one day she has to look up. Cassandra catches Eric's attention.

She can't understand why he would be interested in her. She doesn't believe that he would truly want her after only just meeting her. She avoids him as best as she can, telling him that she isn't that kind of girl. Cassandra doesn't see him as the knight in shining armor that he is.

While taking a walk in the woods, Cassandra meets a man, Adaro, and her ability to be inconspicuous fails her again. He looks right into her eyes and talks to her. He seems to be capable of looking right into her soul and calming her.

Adaro usually avoids humans, but there is something about Cassandra. When he finds out that her father is abusive he will stop at nothing to adopt her, even if that means breaking the laws that he holds so dear.
His need to protect her is so strong that he convinces his wife, Undine, that they are her rightful parents. Their greatest worry is that she will figure out what they really are, Merpeople.

Cassandra has the chance to live with a real family and be loved, but first she has to brake the cardinal rule, and admit what is so obvious. It hurts her to admit that she is an abused child, but she does it so she can hold onto the good thing that she has found.

Cassandra finally gets to have a family who loves her. She now lives in a marvelous house that has aquariums going from room to room. She has an opportunity to heal and to learn to trust others.

She tells herself that it isn't important when she notices that her new family doesn't eat anything other than raw fish, or the fact that they don't sleep in beds, or that they can hum so well that she feels they are hypnotizing her.

The Sons of Thor are a group of five young men who protect humans from Merpeople. They have the ability to electrocute them by shooting lightning bolts out of their fingertips. Their one weakness is a Damsel in Distress, which Cassandra clearly qualifies as.

Eric has to fight his fears that Cassandra's new foster family could harm her. He has to hunt down her father, who is on the run, and convince Cassandra that he truly loves her. Not to mention, impressing his enemies, the Merpeople, so they will let him date her.

This is the first title in the Daughter of the Oceans Series.

Mehr über den Autor

Jennifer Gropp was born on the 21st of January in 1973. She grew up in New Ulm, Minnesota. When she was seventeen she lived a year abroad, where she met her husband. She went to college in Mankato, Minnesota, but returned to Germany when she was finished with college.

She writes almost every day and on the days that she can't manage it she feels that something is missing. She enjoys writing make believe things. Worlds that were only in her head come alive on paper to share with others.

She lives happily in Bavaria, Germany with her husband, three children, two cats and one dog. She has no fish because of the cats, you understand. The temptation would be too much for them.

Favorite quote from her book: Not as many girls believe in love at first sight as one would think.

Jennifer writes all kinds of books but at the moment you can only read Daughter of the Oceans, Part 1. A book for young adults, who like fantasy as well as serious issues.

At the moment she is working on Part 2, and it is coming along nicely. She is also working on a couple of other books that are in different genres.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting potential that goes to waste 8. Juni 2013
Von D. Murphy
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a YA paranormal book that has an interesting idea for 2 different races sharing the earth with humans, for once NOT werewolves and vampires. And NO zombies. You aren't left guessing since the prologue clears up that they are Merpeople and the Sons for Thor, and that these 2 groups have some bad blood between them.
The actual story starts out with a very well-drawn look at life for the perspective of an abused 15 year old girl. The one thing the author did well was getting us into Cassandra's mindset.
Gripe No. 1 is the way the story is told: The story is told in first person by Cassandra and Eric, the Son of Thor who falls in love with her. No a bad story device but the author repeats a lot of the same dialogue and (He heard/she heard) doesn't really give us some much extra information that we really needed to reread what was essentially the same scene twice. Gripe number 2: The style is wooden in places. Cassandra is really the only well-formed character in the book. Eric is okay, but for the second main character we read an awful lot about him suffering because of his separation from Cassandra and not much else. Yes, this is an important point, but surely Eric consists of more than this. Even with Cassandra, we never find out why her father hates her, what the mystery behind her ancestry is, and the deeper reason why the Merpeople adopted her. Gripe 3: the story ends rather abruptly. There is no real hint that there will be another book, which would have at least made you think, 'okay, more on this and what happens with Cassandra and Eric will be part of the next story.' Gripes 4 and 5 are that the punctuation and spelling are abysmal. The comma is not my best friend either, but I would at least have someone else read the text before I asked money for it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing beautiful long story! 2. Juni 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I love this book. It was a book that kept you hooked from the beginning to the end, I am on the edge of my seat waiting for the next book and can't wait for the release date. Once again this author delivers an emotionally raw story that will have you crying and holding on to hope for Cassandra. The love story in this is simply adorable and beautiful and I can't wait to see how that further develops. Once again I give this author five stars, because no one writes like her and I have never read a bad book from this author.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Needs Some Work 23. Mai 2013
Von Jodi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I think this book has potential to be a good YA story. The plot is similar to Twilight, with enough differences to make it interesting. Unfortunatly, the grammer, spelling and general typos were frequent enought to frustrate my reading. The story is told from two points of view, which I liked, except for the fact that sometimes it was just repeating the exact same conversation twice. My opinion is that a good re-write could earn at least 4 stars(and probably 5 from the intended YA audience).

3.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting Tale, But Needs Editing 23. Mai 2013
Von Tim 2:24 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This tells the story of a potential high-school romance, where some of the characters represent two kinds of aliens who are generally enemies. The author does a good job of drawing the reader into the worlds of these aliens and a victim of child abuse who meets both kinds (without realizing they were aliens). I could empathize with many of the characters. There is often a parallel point of view covering the same events by each of the two main characters, and I think the technique works to unfold both of their perspectives. The story will continue into another book, but there was a reasonable partial resolution where this book ended.

I could have given the book four stars, but there are significant errors throughout the book that require more proofreading - spelling, grammar, typos, missing words, punctuation, and formatting. In some sections of the book I noticed an error on just about every page, and it was distracting throughout. Some people may not be as bothered, but if you notice this type of thing, there is a lot to be noticed.

Perhaps someday there will be a second edition of this book with corrections, and hopefully book two will spend longer with an editor before it gets published. This story does have potential and could be better than it is.

Disclosure: I downloaded the book during a temporary free promotion, which the author hoped might result in some reviews.
