Thank you!(Guest Reviewer Program) *** (view spoiler)[ If you are in the mood to read fantasy, but need a break from all those vampire, witch and wizard infested stories, read Discovering Daniel. If you want to read about life on a small island and discover a new underwater world, choose Discovering Daniel. Nadine Christian, living herself on the Pitcairn Island she describes in her story, decides to explore a lesser used mythical creature in her book: mermaids. Not the Ariel/Disney kind of mermaids, but a whole community of Mer both gracious and potentially dangerous... Christian is able to mix this fantasy element succesfully with the story of a young girl growing up on a small island; a girl who will find out soon enough there is more to the island than she originally thinks there is. Definitely recommended! It all starts when Ava is just nine years old and goes on a fishing trip with her father and her uncle Sam. When Ava falls into the water after having seen something overwhelming, her father hits his head trying to save her... Leaving Ava alone and terrified in the water. What happens next is something she won't be able to remember for a long time afterwards: they were saved by two splendid examples of the Mer community close to Pitcairn Island ('mermales'). Whole communities of Mer have been existing all over the world for ages, keeping their residence deep down in the sea where humans cannot reach them. They have been been wrongly accused of attacking ships and killing people for so long that they now prefer to live in secret to avoid problems... But the two mermales knew Ava's father, and they rescued him even though it was against the rules. The boy, Daniel, is only slightly older than Ava and calms her with his voice while his father Nathaniel goes out looking for uncle Sam. Ava only remembers the events of that dreadful day when she is seventeen, and goes out to try and find Daniel against the will of her family. When her investigation finally leads Ava to Daniel, she is so intrigued by him that she simply cannot bear stop meeting with him. A Mer and a Walker (human) are forbidden to even interact, but both are stubborn and are slowly falling in love... Although neither of them admit it. Daniel is able to transform his mermale body into that of a human, and one day he changes to spend the day with Ava and learn more about her. But her Uncle Sam recognized Daniel, and sets Ava an ultimatum: she has to stop seeing Daniel, or he will stop it for her. The next day Daniel had promised her to show her his world and Ava simply couldn't resist... Thinking one last day probably won't hurt them. Unfortunately someone saw them as they were together, and Daniel was taken under custody by the Mer. His father Nathaniel gives Ava a choice: she could help getting Daniel free, but she would have to turn into a mermaid for it and enter the Mer world... Will she accept so she won't lose Daniel again? Discovering Daniel has pleasantly surprised me. This mix between fantasy, romance and island life just worked perfectly, and the writing style just flows and makes the story easy to read. The story has some twists and surprises thrown in as well; I can guarantee you won't see it coming when they reveal the truth about Ava. I will definitely try to check out more of her work in the future!

    This book was given to me by the author through Ethereal Book Reviews (-Guest Reviewer Program) 4.5 Stars. Lets start with a little truth. Me and YA novels don’t seem to be having very good relationship lately. It’s like I’m cursed, and the good finds, that I use to be able to fine, all go into to hiding as soon as I walk into a book store, or Library. I found a marvellous one last month, and then nothing.

Bits and pieces of this incident come back to her, but could her memories be real? Or did she dream them? Ava is unable to leave well enough alone... So when a strong memory that feels like a dream surfaces, she presses her Uncle Sam for answers. He obliges her, and demands she keeps this newly found knowledge a secret. "Everything's changed.

Bits and pieces of this incident come back to her, but could her memories be real? Or did she dream them? Ava is unable to leave well enough alone... So when a strong memory that feels like a dream surfaces, she presses her Uncle Sam for answers. He obliges her, and demands she keeps this newly found knowledge a secret. "Everything's changed. I thought I knew my island and my world... but really I didn't know the half of it." The beautiful ocean, dangerous and bountiful has always called out to Ava. She knows she shouldn't search for more answers, and that she should let it go, but she needs to prove to herself that the memory is real. What she finds is beyond her comprehension... Her memories of a boy named Daniel who saved her and her father, are 100% real, but now how is she to get to know him when her Uncle forbade it? The impossibility of their situation weighs on her. The star-crossed lovers shouldn't mix, as they are from different worlds, and yet they can't stay away from each other. You see, Daniel is a Mer, and to be together one of them has to make the ultimate sacrifice... before it is too late. I thoroughly enjoyed Discovering Daniel, by Author Nadine Christian. Fantastic world building, writing, and an excellent plot. The imagery was described so perfectly, (from the colors and cut of the coral, to the blue gem that Daniel gives Ava which shone rainbow prisms across his face), that I felt like I was right alongside Ava and Daniel. This is a book that you can really escape into. Discovering Daniel takes you through the fantastical underwater world known as Zeno, home to the Mer. This was such a uniquely creative story, and unlike any other fantasy book that I have read. If you are looking to read something a little different, then this book will not disappoint! Discovering Daniel is a young adult, urban fantasy that can be enjoyed by teenagers and adults alike. Nadine Christian's usual writing style of mixing romance, humor and risk is evident in this book, so if you enjoy her other romance books, I'm certain you will enjoy Discovering Daniel. I loved Ava and Daniel as a couple, and enjoyed watching their young romance blossom. They had me rooting for them throughout! Their dangerously risky romance and sneaking around made me eager to turn the page and continue reading! *Warning Spoiler* I may have misunderstood, but I was under the impression that Aunt Kelly was unaware that her husband, Uncle Sam was Mer, per George Christian. So when Aunt Kelly brought it up late at night when she and Ava were unable to sleep, I was surprised that Ava didn't have a reaction. Also, I was really looking forward to learning what Ava would decide, so I was a bit disappointed that we never learned. :( *End of Spoiler Warning* All in all, I am giving Discovering Daniel, by Nadine Christian 5 very well deserved bright red scales! ;) Read Discovering Daniel if you would like to learn if Daniel tastes like fish when Ava kisses him!!! :) ***I received an E-copy of Discovering Daniel, from the Author in exchange for a thoughtful, fair, and honest book review.

    I sat and read this throughout the day yesterday with every chance I got. I've read Nadine Christian's book's before and loved them, so I always look forward to the next book she releases. I was lucky to receive this as an ARC and devoured it right away. Nadine Christian has a way with words, she can draw you into the story bit by bit and before you know it, you are living inside your head with the characters in the story.

Just who is Daniel? What connection does he have to her? How does her family know Daniel? Can she find Daniel? I have to tell you, I was pleasantly surprised in reading this book. Going from Nadine Christians other books I was expecting something along the same lines WRONG!!! but boy oh boy, she pulled this off!!! Nadine Christian I have got to 'know' right from book one, I see her growing as an author, and this book shows me that she truly is an author, not just a writer who writes stories, but someone who is a storyteller. The difference is vast. Anyone can tell a story, but to tell a story and make it LIVE, make the reader believe it, feel it, understand it, read between the lines, and shut the book saying "now that, was a good book", to me, there is a vast huge difference, and Nadine Christian is one of them. This is my HONEST and heartfelt review on DISCOVERING DANIEL

    Mermale/Mermaid-Are they real?? This Young Adult book was written by my favorite author, Nadine Christian. I’m definitely not a Young Adult, but agreed to read and review it. When I saw it was fantasy, I thought, “Oh no, this is not my cup of tea.” Boy, was I ever surprised. It is so believably written that I am wondering if there really is a “Mer World.” This young lady of 17 years is in love with a Mermale, who saved her life when she was 9 years old.

It is so believably written that I am wondering if there really is a “Mer World.” This young lady of 17 years is in love with a Mermale, who saved her life when she was 9 years old. She had forgotten the event until her Uncle helped her remember 8 years later. The suspense and mystery surrounding her family is all intertwined in a decision she has to make on her 18th birthday. Of course, the beaches, coves and waters of the island are so well described. You can close your eyes and see the beauty in the Mer city of Zeno. However, all was not beauty below the sea. They also had a court system and punished Mers who broke their law. So many wonderful fantasies surround this island that I wonder if these beautiful creatures are off the shores and how many of the people who live on the island are Mers. You’ll have to read the book to know what I mean. You will not be disappointed.

The love of what a parent will do to protect their child. What a friend will do to help another. Loyalty, trust and love. It is all here and Christian made it heartfelt. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed the love story that is Ava and Daniel! But as I put this book down I felt more was needed. Maybe an epilogue flash forward to gather some closure on final decisions made by the characters would satisfy the lack of finality I feel when thinking about the story.

    I am in love with this story. Such a well written and interesting love story. As with Nadine's other books, I feel like I am on Pitcairn with the characters. Nadine paints a perfect picture of the island and her characters to make me feel like I'm part of it. I could not put the book down and was sad when I reached the end (I could have followed the characters forever)!!

It held my attention and was filled with many twists and turns I wasn't expecting. It is more of a YA book than NA, but it is a perfect blend of romance, mystery, and fantasy. Readers are introduced to the main character, Ava, when she is just a child. She and her father are fishing when she sees the face of a beautiful boy looking back at her from underwater. Shocked, surprised, and maybe a bit frightened, she falls overboard. This is when Ava and readers first get a glimpse of the magical world that exists under the sea that is filled with mermaids and mer-men. After being rescued by the strange boy and his father and safely returned to the boat to her father, her dad convinces her to forget what she saw. And, she does until she begins having visions of a beautiful boy she saw in the sea. She does some snooping, and one day Daniel appears to her in the flesh. Thus, begins the beautiful, magical love story that is Ava and Daniel. As their story unfolds, they get to know one another and feel a strong, magical connection. As their feelings continue to grow, dark secrets concerning both of their families surface. Can this young couple survive the truth when they discover it? While the bulk of the book is about Ava and Daniel, there is a lot of mystery and dark family secrets. There were many twists, turns, and surprises that kept me wanting to read just one more chapter. One of my favorite aspects of the book is the author's descriptive writing style. The island of Pitcairn is beautiful; I now want to go see this special, magical place. Her description of the ocean is so vivid that it could be considered a main character in this tale as well. If you are looking for something a bit different, to escape the real world, and journey to a magical place, give this book a try. I am hoping there will be a continuation of Ava and Daniel's story as well as possible standalones involving other characters of the book.

Thanks to both Ethereal Book Reviews and Nadine Christian for giving me an opportunity to read this book! :)* You know what? If I could be any supernatural being, I would totally be a mermaid (but not the killer kind; just the Disney Ariel kind). Ava just remembered something huge that happened when she was 9. This memory leads to a discovery. This discovery then leads to a whole world of lies that get blown up in said liars faces. Basically, the little lie turns Ava’s world upside down. I found the beginning to be a little slow. I understand that it is important to set up the novel, I do. But in “Discovering Daniel”, a lot of that set up is Ava sitting down and talking about it with her Uncle. Even though it was really interesting to hear the stories about the merfolk, I would have liked to see Ava doing something (like looking for Daniel) in the beginning. However, the book picked up the pace after a while and the last 50-75 pages went by super quick! Yes. Ok. Some of this book was predictable. But it was a good predictable because when I found out that I was right, I was yelling “I KNEW IT! I WAS RIGHT!” (as you can see, I got really into the book). But the ending solution (I really don’t know what else to call it), I didn’t see coming. I enjoyed the fact that I could predict some parts, but I need Christian to tie it all together for me. This is the kind of book that I will read over and over again. It is perfect for when you have just read a book like “The Fault in Our Stars” and have completed sobbed your brains out. You need a book where everything goes right in the world. So I thank Nadine Christian for writing the book that is like ice cream after a break up. It makes everything feel better (or sort of). Maybe you really like mermaids or you are really sad. Either way, they both are reasons on why you should check out “Discovering Daniel” by Nadine Christian.

BUT, even if you don’t like mermaids, you SHOULD read this book. I didn’t know what to expect, but I decided to give it a shot because the first few chapters got me hooked into the story. This book is about two people from two different worlds trying to have a relationship without either of their worlds finding out. There’s a really cute romance and if love at first sight existed, this would be exactly how it would happen (kind of). Let me start by talking about the characters. I loved Ava. She’s such a strong and independent teenage girl / woman.. I love the relationship that she has with her family. They’re so close and her dad is basically her best friend. Daniel was such a sweet guy. He’s thoughtful and madly in love with Ava to the point where he’s willing to give up everything that’S familiar to him just to be with her. He’s also quite the charmer. I mean, what 9 year girl could resist a 10 year old boy giving her a coral flower with her hair tie tied to it? Certainly not me. I couldn’t put this book down. There’s wasn’t really any action scene but I just wanted to figure out how their relationship was going to turn out. I was hooked and just wanted to see more kissy-kissy and cutsie romance. Something that disappointed me was that a little bit after half the book, I knew how it was going to end. I saw it coming. But still. I will not be re-reading it, but I’m still glad that I did at least once. I recommend this book to anyone who likes secret relationships (Romeo and Juliette style) or who simply like’s mermaids. Final Rating: 4,4 Stars

    This is getting a solid 3 ½ stars form me today, but to be fair I don’t think I am the target market. This started out great I liked the flow and the characters, it was real, but somewhere around the middle it lost me a little bit, the dialogue went from being good to a bit wooden and stiff and sort of formal-ish. The timing and pacing was well done though and it worked well. I really did love the ideas that went onto this however. It was very intriguing and whimsical.

I have never really read anything like it before, but this was written as a YA and it suits it. But I would like to read a more grown up take on it, not sex or anything like that but just not written for the YA market. I would have liked more world building and adult actions and reactions. It was a bit repetitive and sort of said the same things over and over at times too. I didn’t understand the last part of the book at all though, every ones reactions to situations and how everyone talked and interacted just didn’t work. Something huge happened, someone dies and nothing…I don’t get it. Everything seemed swept under the rug and ignored and that’s just not real, I know life goes on but with such a small community surely the loss of someone would be kind of a big deal, big enough for, you know family to turn up for it even!!...like I said I just don’t understand that bit at all and left me feeling a bit cold. Overall I did enjoy this and I am very interested to see where this goes

The character development that occurred throughout this book was awesome. I really enjoyed this book, but the thing that made this book very excellent in my opinion was the setting. This book is set in an island town and for anyone that has a love for the ocean this book is amazing. I love how Nadine writes about the ocean and really captures the beauty of it. All in all this is a quick, interesting and well developed young adult read that features a unique paranormal twist. The only reason I am giving this book only four stars is because the pacing of this book often is a bit slow. However other than the pacing I think it's a very good book and would recommend it to anyone craving a good summer read that has a gorgeous setting, a touch of supernatural young adult romance and very well rounded characters. ***this book was given to me by the author through Ethereal Book Reviews (Guest Reviewer Program)***

The book ended perfectly, just the way I wanted. I fell in love with this book, and will absolutely be reading it again. I strongly suggest Discovering Daniel to anyone. I have to give this book 5 out of 5 stars!

    This book did not coordinate with the advertisements for book clubs that the publisher put in front of the book. I don’t think one of those book clubs advertising a free erotic book for joining should be in a YA novel. Not sure what the author could do about that, but as a parent I would not want it in my YA reader’s book. So onto the book, I loved it. It was thought out and wrote well. She meets Daniel at an early age due to an accident. Then after that accident the books jumps about 9 years la This book did not coordinate with the advertisements for book clubs that the publisher put in front of the book.

She meets Daniel at an early age due to an accident. Then after that accident the books jumps about 9 years later. She is almost 18 now, and beginning to remember. It is a thrilling page turning events from then throughout the rest of the book. So many secrets, so many lies, love will prevail or will it? Read this book to find out. I am hoping there are more to come, as it seems their story is not over yet. I can’t wait to read more! * Reviewed by Confessions of a BooklovinJunkie Blog*

    This book had me on the edge of my seat the whole time! I had to get up from my desk to take care of other things, and I just couldn't get back to the book quick enough. This book is a real page turner and had me feeling all kinds of emotions while reading. This book has it all and I highly recommend it! This book seemed so real and was very descriptive. I felt as if I was right there. I give this book 5***** hands down. This was the first book that I have read by this author, and I cannot wait This book had me on the edge of my seat the whole time!

    This book consists of an original plotline and is appropriate for reading starting from High school. The story was interesting but was a little hard to get through at times. It does keep you on your toes though. :-) I kind of figurued out wat was going to happen but was still a wee bit surprised as to how it actually turned out to be. So do mermaids and merman actually still excist?
