Luminous (Psyne, #1)

Luminous (Psyne, #1) - Jasmine Angell If you were to mix magic, sci-fi, fantasy, mermaids, romance, and a bit of adventure, you'd get Luminous. The mermaids were fun to read about- graceful, near perfect creatures, who value life and harmony above all else, travel to our world to help when we're faced with trouble. This book reminded me a bit of Stargate: Atlantas, with the other-world portals, alien beings, and the powerful enemy they are made to face.

Ilauria is quite a character. Rebellious against a group of leaders she feels are wrong, she sets out on an adventure to save a world she loves, and rescue her missing sisters. Paired with some quirky companions, she faces dangerous creatures who threaten not only Earth, but the rest of life as well.

This was an interesting story to jump into. Starting out with emotion and vivid descriptions, the story kept up a good pace of adventure and intrigue throughout the book. The writing was eloquent and smart, and very well suited to sci-fi fans. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys adventures, sci-fi, or any of the shows on the sci-fi channel.
