Waking Storms - Sarah  Porter *Genre* YA Paranormal, Mermaids Trilogy*Rating* 3.0*First Thoughts*Wow does Luce make some absolutely stupid mistakes in Waking Storms. From putting all her heart, soul, and energy into spending time with Dorian, to turning her back on her friends who looked towards Luce to save them from Anais only to discover humans have discovered their identity and war is right around the corner.I liked the addition of Nausicaa and hope that she's not wrong in that Luce is the future of the mermaids. I liked her because she's been around for thousands of years and is a source of much needed information that Luce has failed to understand. I also liked Inuit Queen Sedna who may or may not be an ally and someone Luce can count on.The one constant for me is the fact that I like the uniqueness of how mermaids are changed. Although it's kind of harsh when you think about how these girls were abandoned, and mistreated, it's still unique to any other mermaid story I've read. I guess my only question remains is it possible for them to revert back into being a human once again.Of course, this is the middle novel in the trilogy so there are still a bunch of unanswered questions. So, obviously, once my library gets this book in, I shall endeavor to finish the series.Published July 3rd 2012 by Harcourt Children's Books
