"I pranced to the front door." No one walks in this book. If a character isn't prancing she's skipping, trotting, strolling, traipsing, scurrying, scampering, creeping, hopping or lurking. True, lurking means to wait but in this book it becomes a form of motion.
"Her lean physique approached my direction with purpose." This sentence speaks for itself.
"I slid from the fluffy sanctuary." Most of us refer to this as a bed.
Four paragraphs were devoted to her laying her towel on the beach sand. That was memorable, especially since it had
nothing to do with the story and was never mentioned again!
Thirteen pages were needed to describe the first few moments of meeting between Sadie and the strange boy! Most of it was her explaining how she immediately fell in love with him even though, they "barely knew each other." Barely? They knew each other about 2 minutes.
In all fairness, the book may have improved but I only made it through a third before giving up.
Cons: The main female character seemed like a weak and dependent character, and I didn't like how she was left in the dark and didn't push harder for answers. Both the main female and male characters are also heavily driven by emotions and love-at-first sight. And while the fantasy in this world had potential, I felt like it wasn't fully developed. There's this secret, magic water that's guarded by a race of people, but that's all I know. Who are these people? Are they human, or something else? Where is their society? Why do they feel a responsibility to use the water to heal humans? So many questions left unanswered, and it was hard to immerse myself in the story and setting.
Summary: Okay for a one time read, but not interested in reading sequels.

Well, Deep Blue Secret isn't a page-turner, thriller and action/adventure fans, but it has this thing where it keeps you reading. It's slow paced, yet good pace that it doesn't let the reader down but builds up and becomes more interesting – sort of – the further you read in the book.
It is, however, not too impressive on my radar. Probably memorable though.
Goodreads, take out Mermaids being a shelf ASAP. This is not about mermaids, so quit trolling potential readers.
Sadie, you are a DAMSEL in distress. Literally. Up and down with the mood swings, I kind of thought you were bipolar for awhile. Of course, you're still a damsel in distress. And you seem really happy and not having a care in the world. It's time to pull out the excited, happy girl from The Photo Traveler's review folks.
Rayne, you seem too perfect. Quit being the white knight on a silky sleek horse and let Sadie be the heroine once in awhile instead of saving her 24/7. And yes, I am WELL aware that you have good reason to be overly protective.
Sadie's mom, you're too happy, but you're perfect. Adopt me? You seem like a really cool mom to have. And I would love to have a bear shaped pancake. x)
Heather, you're almost perfect. I might be squirming with how the likes and totallys seem out of place though, but you're an awesome friend.
Voss, you are a typical villain in terms of looks. Too creepy. You put Voldemort and his famous "nose" to shame. Of course, that won't matter much since you're quite clever in your schemes. And reading the excerpt for book 2, I'm curious as to what you are up to next. Mind giving me a hint? I promise I won't tell anyone else. ;)
Good transitions, but if you like a story that slowly builds up, then it's free on Amazon. Try it out and see, but I warn you of a cliffhanger (not surprising though...). :3
Just a totally random and unrelated thought, but I always love it when I get a review request, recognize the book and then find out I actually have the book. Lucky 13. I'll live for the day when I manage to get to 50% of my library read. The calculator's answer? 0.016169154228855721393034825870647
Oh gods. That's barely a blip.
Like the novel featured in my last review, Flight of Life by E.L. Todd, I must also commend Christie Anderson for the innovation and ingenuity used in the creation and writing of Deep Blue Secret and the other two books in the The Water Keepers series. As a reader of many fantasy novels, I can honestly say that I have never read something with similar ideas. Personally, I really enjoyed Sadie as a character. While not only kind, beautiful, and intelligent, Sadie also has moments of brokenness that make her relatable. I only have one word to describe Rayne, DREAMY. Please don’t be expecting an action-packed plot. This is your typical romance “we-fell-in-love-immediately-but-can’t-be-together” type of book, but unlike most mushy lovey-dovey writing, Rayne and Sadie’s love affair didn’t make me gag and sprint for the nearest toilet. The amount of depth in their relationship genuinely touched me. Deep Blue Secret stood out to me for its expertly crafted characters, engaging dialogue and internal monologues, and inventive writing.
