Being the only human in a world of merfolk... isn't easy. Florence Waverley chose to stay in Niemela, but things have gone awry. Secrets have risen and the prince she cares about has pulled away. All the while, dark dreams warn her of a tragedy that only she can stop. But in order to save the merman she loves, Florence will have to enter the Life Path tournament: a brutal test of fear and madness.



The tournament is a rite of passage--a maze where young mermaids and mermen battle to find their purpose. It is also a place where Florence will face grave danger: mermaids with evil magic, tunnels filled with sea fire, and guardians who wish to use her as a pawn in their secret plans. But will Florence be strong enough to survive the tournament... or will she perish inside it?


Everything hangs in the balance: her life, her world, and her love.

Well, well, this is the sequel of Florence. After reading the first book I was super excited and really hoped there would be a sequel, because the ending was pretty much open. Yeey, my wishes came true! When the author asked me to review his second book I was beyond excited! And the Luminaire hasn't disappointed me at all!

Florence rocks in this book even more. She is still kind of an outsider in the Mer world, but she is trying hard to fit in. She wanted to support and helf the princess Yolee, so she decided to take part of the Life Path tournament. She also had a Truth-dream of the future. Everything is at stake and only she can save the future of all the Mer-people she loves.

Rolan. Ayayay. Rolan, Rolan. I knew something wasn't quite right with you. He acted really strange and Florence couldn't understand why he acted like he didn't care at all. Niether did I. But ofcourse, there is always an explanation! I think I liked him in this book even more <3

The writing was good, and the story was full of action! Which I liked very much. Maybe I just wished there was more to the story than just the tournament. Or about the lost prince Kiren.  But all the rest? Freaking awesome.

So, if you're searching for a good mermaid book, filled with action, romance, courage and friendship, Luminaire is the perfect book for you!

I freaking LOVED Luminaire! And Rolan was so frustrating at the beginning of the book! I just wanted him and Florence to end up together!! Great review, Nea! <3
