*SPOILERS BELOW, AND IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE BOOK THIS REVIEW MIGHT NOT MAKE A LOT OF SENSE* Let me first began by saying how I love the Emily Windsnap series. I started reading the series in probably third or fourth grade, and I love them. By The Siren’s secret, I was really enjoying the plot and characters. Then along comes a little thing called, Emily Windsnap and the Land of the Midnight Sun. Best, one, yet! This book broke the common themes, had Neptune do something other than rage at everyone, and introduced new characters. Here’s a food analogy that explains it a little better. The series was kind of like a recipe. There is a problem. Emily needs to solve it. Throw in a little friendship tension, and family problems. Then for the end, add some Neptune rages and then gets soft and all is well. This was the common theme, or recipe, for the series. All was pretty good. Then in comes the top chef Liz Kessler, with this grand finale dessert dish called The Land of the Midnight Sun. Basically, my expectations were pretty high for the next book. I’m sorry to say that after reading The Ship of Lost Souls, I was very disappointed. The plot seemed bland at first, the characters and dialog seemed forced, and aren’t Aaron and Emily only like, 14? I don’t feel like they should be saying that they love each other. It seemed like a slap together of the original recipe. And I also don’t understand why Neptune appeared at the end for what seemed like half a page, just to say that he would be throwing a feast in honor of Emily risking her life to rescue a ship full of innocent people, and a semi-mer with HER CHILD. Seth has access to Neptune, why didn’t he go to Neptune, explain the situation, and have Neptune help?! I don’t know, maybe I’m getting too old for these books, but this was pretty disappointing. On the other hand though, I was not expecting Atlanta (the baby) to be the thing they had Atlantis, and the scene with Emily in Atlantis was pretty good and all believable. But the whole “science” or magic of it just felt off. What is Atlantis? Why haven’t we heard of this before? What is the point of Atlantis? It all seemed awkward and forced. The other factor that was quite confusing was Aaron and Emily, as I mentioned earlier. Their relationship “struggles” seemed very off, and I didn’t enjoy reading about it. Shona was a little bland, but Aaron got some more character, which I enjoyed. And then there’s Mandy. Mandy is basically a reformed character. And I’m sorry to say… I don’t really like her. We don’t really know her, and all of her scenes were kind of forced. I guess overall, my main complaint is the feel of the dialog, and maybe the passing time, felt weird and rushed. The field trip felt unrealistic, and I wished the book had a better description of the island. Don’t take this too badly though. Everyone has their own opinions, and this was just one of Liz Kessler’s weaker books. (In my opinion of course) But don’t worry, I still love Liz Kessler, and am looking forward to more of her books! (Assuming she continues writing them)

What a great series for students in grades 3 to 8, especially girls. Emily is half mermaid, but attends a school for humans. She has found a boyfriend who is also half-mer and attends the same school, at least she hopes he will become her boyfriend. Her school and the mermaid school, where her best friend attends, is going on a doublefield trip to Fivebays Island. While on a treasure hunt with Aaron, they see a ship in the mist, but then it mysteriously disappears. Emily and her best mermaid friend see the shop again, and this time Emily sees a woman in a porthole trying to talk to her, but again, the ship disappears. With the help of her friends, Emily learns that the ship is connected to Atlantis and is trapped, unable to come back to the human world. The woman is the wife of Lyle, the man trying to hold together the fieldtrip. Can Emily find a way onto the ship and discover a way to release the ship and its passengers from hold the binds them? The story is a bit simple and it is sometimes difficult to believe that the main characters are only 13 and 14 year olds, but it seems to work. This is the 6th book in this series and even though I have not read any of the others, I was able to follow the story. There were references to things that happened in previous books so it is probably a good idea to read them in order if possible. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
