    Easy little fun read At first I felt as though I was going into this sequel blindly, because I don t really remember too much from the first book, but it didn t matter and when I got to the end, I had bits and pieces coming back to me I liked May, but found her parents, especially her mother, annoying Rudd didn t really seem to have a reason to be there, either, but I did like Hugh I really only have two complaints, one I wish there was a little to the ending I understand that there is supposed [...]

    No spoilers for May, but if you haven t read Hannah you might want to move on to another review.A beautiful sequel that s almost better than it s predecessor May is my favorite of the DOS books and I really enjoyed it While I enjoyed the previous book, Hannah what really bothered me was the pacing Hannah doesn t know she s a mermaid until the very very end of the book, and it left me desperate for May punny, I see what you did Kathryn Here, May finds out the mermaid thing MUCH sooner than Hanna [...]

    Since I finally had a chance to read Hannah I thought I would just go ahead and read May while the first book was still fresh in my mind I found that I enjoyed reading May a lot .One, if not, the main reason I enjoyed May than Hannah would have to be that it didn t take practically the whole book for her to find out what she was if there s one thing that annoys me about books is when it takes the whole book for the MC to figure out what the reader has known since they picked up the book At time [...]

    When I read Daughters of the Sea 1 I was very disappointed I expected the focus of the book to be on mermaids and it was about a girl who shuffles around and turns at the end Needless to say I guess I should have held on to my britches as Lasky fulfills this craving in this book May starts off with a new character and a completely different point of view, but this time there is a huge focus on the mermaid aspect and a few hints about what is to come in the series Some of this book backtracks a l [...]

    Jessica
    Kudos for Lasky for finding a niche that has not been completely over written i.e vampires enough already.I started reading this book and was halfway through when I discovered that it was a 2 in a series Didn t realize it and that s a huge plus The story held it s own I didn t need the first book to tell me what was going on.The premise and plot were decent The writing not bad But the character development was pretty flat Zeeba was hateful and selfish Gar was kind and tolerant Rudd was a creep H [...]

    I really, really wanted to love this book I think the series has a great premise, three separate books that link together, but, while some things have improved from the first book, Hannah, this book still has the main problems that made the first book disappointing.First, I loved the author s descriptions of life in the sea Beautiful She has some wonderful prose.What bothers me is how long these books take to get going, and then the denouement takes place in the last ten pages of the book Not mu [...]

    This book delivers in the areas of character development, world building, and conflict in ways its predecessor didn t May is a dynamic character who quickly discovers and masters her powers while still struggling with her identity and love While the romance oozes cheese, it s well developed and compelling Meanwhile, the villains multiply, the stakes get higher, and Lasky s world expands, promising a tidal wave in the future.Full review on my blog at splinteredfragmentsoflight.blo

    Loving this series But you might want to wait for book 3 to come out whenever that will be before starting on this series I love how this second book story line overlaps the first and answers many of the questions left at the end of the first Still, so many questions waiting to be answered in the next book

    Kirsti Call
    Naomi insisted that I read this although after the tedium of reading several guardians of Ga hoole books I was skeptical This book was obviously written as part of a series There were too many unaswered questions I much prefer books that can stand on their own despite having other books that are connected to it.

    I like to watch movies that are based in the 1800 s a lot and Kathryn Lasky brought my attention to books instead The story seemed too short and felt as if not everything was there I love the mother, Zeeba and her fascination to illness, or complications as she called them Over all it was a good enough read but no chance at being that great.

    Jacquelyn
    I really enjoyed this book, as well as the first book, Hannah The book drew me in from the beginning, and I couldn t wait to read what May would do next I actually ended up reading this in one sitting I couldn t put it down, and I can t wait for the next book

    3.5 Much better than the first The romance was much believable, May was a much better character, the writing flowed better, and the story was much better Altogether a better book.

    May thought she was just an ordinary girl in the beginning but she was wrong She wasn t just an ordinary girl because the first time she got in the water she knew exactly how to swim After a while she began to grow scales and a tail The book reminds me of my brother because one time he wanted some salt so i tried to give it to him when he took it he touched my finger and it felt kind of like a turtle Then to make everything worse she meets this guy and he goes to shake her hand but she wouldn t [...]

    DNF Teen version of Ethan Frome At least the beginning.

    Kate
    Its just plain legit

    Rachel Reyna
    Just as immersive as the first.

    Carolynn
    I liked this less then the first one Her mother is crazy I did like the end when the first and the second book meshed together, and I still plan on reading the rest.

    Melaniemouse
    This one was so much better than the first It still had some flaws, like weird run on sentences and bizarre imagery, such as this The flashes were like parentheses in the darkness of the long winter nights whose shadows clung like lint through the short day when hours of light were whittled away minute by minute Um, what And a lot of sentences felt like they were just plain not proofread, they lacked punctuation where you would normally think it would be, etc But these flaws occurred a lot less [...]

    May is the second book in Daughters of the Sea, a series about mermaid sisters who all washed up on different parts of the American coast and were raised to think they were human until their yearning for the ocean causes them to discover the truth.Having not read the first book, I was taking May entirely on its own merits, of which it has many I enjoyed the central character s voice She was young but had a certain determination and hardness that came from being the Lighthouse Keeper s daughter I [...]

    My new passion OK OK obsession MERMAIDS I know lately everyone is saying overdone, just like all the vampire books I think that is all in how you write your mermaid book If it is done in the same old same old mermaid fashion than of course overdone Daughters of the Sea series is wonderfully written by author Kathryn Lasky May has her own story, she has a missing part from her that she has a hard time finding The journey May takes in this book is wonderful, she embarks on new adventures not just [...]

    In the second story we meet May whose family works the lighthouse in the summer vacation area of the rich, where Hannah as a servant goes each summer with the family she works for We see little glimpses of Hannah throughout this book but the main focus is on May as she discovers what she is Her transformation is a little quicker, which is great because as a reader we couldn t have the same book three times May falls in love and she meets Hannah, they go about trying to find out the circumstances [...]
