This book had the potential to be great but didn't quite make it. It started out strong and I was immediately captivated with the world and what was going on. Taking place in a post apocalyptic world where most of the earth is flooded and there is very little land. On top of that, there is no government and people struggle everyday whether it is on dry land or out in the water.
In this story we travel around with Myra and her daughter, Pearl, as she looks for her other missing daughter, Row. We travel with her and learn of her past and of her present journeys.
I was very much into this story but about halfway through, I was getting to the point that I didn't like our main character or her daughter too much. The mother came across as self-centered and had poor decision making. The daughter was just kind of weird. I still enjoyed the story but at about three quarters through I felt the book should've ended by now. It seemed to be 100+ pages too long for me. I think I could've walked away and enjoyed it with that but as Myra kept making bad decisions and putting everyone around her in danger, my irritation with her grew stronger. Yet, when a decision needed to be made, everyone in the group looked at her for her final say. Why would you do that?? Luckily, there were a couple of characters I really liked but most of them, not so much.
Anyway, it was still a good read especially for a first novel. Would look at reading more from this author.

I stayed up waaaaaay too late reading after starting this book, but alas it was too long to finish in one day. I finished it the second day though!

This book had it all: action, suspense, a little romance, and even pirates. I was completely drawn into the water covered world of Myra and Pearl.
