Picture an island set in a glittering blue sea, sparkling with white sand and palm trees, a secret place where humans and merfolk live together and where a girl who grows a mermaid’s tail when she enters the water is not considered a problem. To Emily Windsnap—half mermaid, half human—her new home is perfect. That is, until Emily ruins everything by waking a legendary sea monster known as the Kraken from its hundred-year sleep. As the Kraken rises from the deep, putting the future of the islanders in jeopardy, Emily makes a desperate attempt to save them. But how could she have dreamed that her best friend, Shona, would stop talking to her, or that Mandy Rushton, her old enemy from junior high, would turn up when least expected?

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shanna | 12/31/2013

    " I don't know if it was the reader from the audio-tape...or what, but I thought the book was VERY whiny! I may have to read the book itself. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Harriet Copeland | 12/23/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberly | 12/14/2013

    " Not as good as the first but still an entertaining read. I'd never heard of Kraken before this book. When I was flipping channels the other day I happened upon a movie called Kraken: Tentacles of the Deep. It looked like a B movie at best. "

    " SCARY MONSTER! DOUGHNUTS! it may sound weird that i wrote doughnuts, but you have to read the book to find out why its so important. and it IS important. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Millie cooke | 10/3/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Readhead | 4/27/2012

    " Everyone knows what happens in sequels- they are never as good as the original. While it wasn't so bad to make it lose a star in my rating, it just wasn't quite as good for some reason. Oh well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carly | 4/21/2012

    " Good for pre-teens. Picks up where the 1st book left off. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charlotte | 11/12/2011

    " Lot's of excitement and just enough scariness for Kiera. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paula J. | 7/1/2011

    " More fun for the whole family, and a bit more complex than the first book. Mermaids, shipwrecks, sea monsters awakened too soon from their hundred-year slumber, gawkers, fortune-seekers, and tween angst. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Justine Mattson | 6/17/2011

    " I liked this book a little more then the first because this one was more adventure and risk, and less love and mystery. "

    " This book was good in a weird way "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 ?Stephanie | 4/17/2011

    " Definitely one of those one-of-a-kind type of books. You can find books with mermaids in them... But none quite like this one! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Angela | 12/31/2010

    " While I loved the first one on audio I found the shrill tone and constant franticness of this story to be too much for audio. I may actually try reading it as a book instead. It was just too overwrought-teen-moaning-and screeching to listen too! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mikkall | 12/28/2010

About the Author
Author Liz KesslerLiz Kessler's first book, The Tail of Emily Windsnap, was published in ten countries. Of Emily Windsnap and Monster from the Deep, she says, "I always knew that Emily's story wasn't finished at the end of the first book. I really wanted to explore the idea of an island where humans and merfolk lived together in peace. I also knew that there was a detail I was missing. Then I happened to see an in-flight video about a theme park with a ride called the Kraken, and I instantly knew that this creature was the missing ingredient." Liz Kessler lives on a canal boat in the countryside just outside Manchester, England, where she is working on her third book, Emily Windsnap and the Castle in the Mist.
