Booklist Review: "Evie Pomeroy has always possessed a healer's touch, but she never realized the extent of her innate talent nor its source. When she gets the opportunity to leave the forest village in which she was raised by her grandfather and travel at the king's invitation to study medicine for real at university, she jumps at the chance to fulfill her dream. Along the way, she is robbed at gunpoint by a highway robber, survives a shipwreck, watches her potential love interest die and then be resurrected, and befriends the princess of a mysterious water kingdom. Throw into the mix the fact that Evie is a water-born Serpentina, which leads to a reunion with other sea creatures whose lives are precariously linked to her own. There is a lot going on in this book, and the various plot elements drop away and then reappear unevenly, but eventually it all comes together in a tidy package. Readers of Berry's The Amaranth Enchantment (2009) will be eager to read this.--Dean, Kara Copyright 2010 Booklist"
