7-POINTER Review: Waterfell by Amalie Howard

7-Pointer Review is my version of a quick review in just about 7 points, a conclusion and my feeling at the end of my read with a picture.  I have so many books to review that I have already read and so much more books to read.  So, I am sorry for making some reviews short (which will be monthly once or twice).  But, don't worry, I will try to get it all out.

Original Title: Waterfell
Series: The Aquarathi #1
Author: Amalie Howard
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Release Date: October 29th 2013
Source: Review copy from the publisher
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Young-adult


Nerissa Marin hides among teens in her human form, waiting for the day she can claim her birthright—the undersea kingdom stolen from her the day her father was murdered. Blending in is her best weapon—until her father's betrayer confronts Nerissa and challenges her to a battle to the death on Nerissa's upcoming birthday—the day she comes of age.

Amid danger and the heartbreak of her missing mother, falling for a human boy is the last thing Nerissa should do. But Lo Seavon breaches her defenses and somehow becomes the only person she can count on to help her desperate search for her mother, a prisoner of Nerissa's mortal enemy. Is Lo the linchpin that might win Nerissa back her crown? Or will this mortal boy become the weakness that destroys her?


1. Selfish protoganist, Nerissa, with a huge (like really really huge) responsibility (DISLIKE)
2. Charming and mysterious boyfriend, Lo
3. Amazing friendship and loyalty (LOVE LOVE LOVE Jenna)
4. Evil queen trying to kill everyone (who also has a whole round of mystery to herself)
5. Brilliant world-building (would have loved to know more about Aquarathi) and original plot (LOVE)
6. So many mysteries and twists in the plot keep you hooked
8. Refreshing, engaging, action-packed wild ride with potential to a great series.

The originiality in the plot is the strong point here.  More than anything, I give it to all the characters (other than Rissa) for such an incredible ride.  And as there is still a lot of mystery to solve, I will definitely be continue reading the series.


  1. I read this one and I liked it a lot
    GREAT review
    Your reader

  2. Thank you, Soma! And I am glad that you liked it too..
