Overview
THE GIRL WHO WOULD BE QUEEN
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?

Combining high school romance with fantasy and SF elements, Howard (Bloodspell) launches her Aquarathi series, about an alien race taking shelter in Earth's seas. Nerissa Marin is a high school junior in San Diego; secretly, she's also the heir to the Aquarathi throne, hiding in the human world after the assassination of her father by the usurper Ehmora. Like Hamlet, Nerissa feels compelled to avenge her father's murder and take her rightful place as ruler, but fear, indecision, and her affections for fellow student Lo cloud her resolve. Readers won't gain much of a sense of the Aquarathi world in Howard's first installment; the narrative provides only glimpses of the kingdom and its inhabitants as Nerissa is embroiled in a lackluster love story in a realistic high school setting; late revelations add weight to the somewhat insubstantial passion between Nerissa and Lo. Nerissa's smartest move is to confide in her human best friend Jenna—smart, spunky, and believably incredulous, she's the story's best-realized character on water or land. Ages 14–up. Agent: Lisa Fleissig, Liza Royce Agency. (Nov.)
