    Destiny and Kinkade were so likable, and I loved the oceanic humor Schaefer employed I may have teared up by the end Overall, this is a story about family It s also about a fourteen year old girl finding that there is an entire underwater world that loves and needs her I hope the author is planning another book, because it s hard for me to find stories where the characters tug at my heartstrings Awaiting Destiny was charming and genuine.

    This was short and sweet A little young for me but it was a nice break Target audience is probably tweens It was clean though, which was refreshing.

    Awaiting Destiny is a cute story whose target audience appears to be Tweens but also provides a fun read for YA s who need a respite from the day to day effort of appearing to be grown up For those readers who are ahem somewhat older than the target audience, Awaiting Destiny can serve as a brief but very pleasant vacation from being an adult.Destiny Mariner is a thirteen year old girl living with her father, Jacob Mariner, aboard his double masted sailboat, Seadancer, in the Enchanted Awaiting Destiny is a cute story whose target audience appears to be Tweens but also provides a fun read for YA s who need a respite from the day to day effort of appearing to be grown up For those readers who are ahem somewhat older than the target audience, Awaiting Destiny can serve as a brief but very pleasant vacation from being an adult.Destiny Mariner is a thirteen year old girl living with her father, Jacob Mariner, aboard his double masted sailboat, Seadancer, in the Enchanted Cove Marina Dad owns the marina in addition to working as a boat mechanic and her mother, Shelleen,wellshe has been MIA for all of Destiny s life One could say that she vanished under mysterious circumstances but her father has no idea about any circumstances at all All he does know is that newly born Destiny was delivered to the deck of the Seadancer shortly after Shelleen disappeared.Destiny has grown over the preceding 13 year into a true tomboy She constantly wears her lucky baseball cap, constantly avoids wearing dresses and the only diamond she wants to see has to do with America s pass time Her favourite foods leave something to be desired at least to human tastes as her favourite treat seems to be sardines and ice creameaten together.If the reader has not guessed by now, Destiny s choice of 2 cans of tuna with a side of diced clams for breakfast has much to do with her mother Shelleen that s Princess Shelleen to you being a mermaid The story opens with a Mermail man delivering a package to Destiny in the wee small hours of the night Destiny doesn t see the package until after her father has left for a week long business trip leaving her in charge of the boat She is thirteen years old after all The package contains a necklace and a note which instructs her to instructs her to proceed posthaste to Longitude 49 Latitude 129 with the utmost secrecy in order to learn the truth about her mother.The chance to learn something anything about her mother causes Destiny to throw caution to the winds and get underway in the boat s dingy While she is a conscientious sailor and dutifully goes through the pre departure checklist, she forgets to check the weather advisory and leaves her life jacket on the deck of the Seadancer The wind kicks up, the seas get rough, the dingy is torn to flinders and Destiny promptly drowns Wellnot really it s hard to drown a mermaid and Destiny awakes well below the surface, able to breathe salt water and trapped in the remains of the dingy She is freed from this predicament by a passing merboy named Kincade who informs her that she is not only a mermaid but a princess as well There is only one problem Destiny can t seem to get her mermaid mojo working well enough to swap her legs for a proper tail Don t you just hate it when that happens Kincade hails a manta ray the only way to travel and both the merboy and the not so much mermaid are off to see the wizard In this case however, the Emerald City is named Mertopia and the wizard is actually her grandfather, the king.Awaiting Destiny is one of those stories that is just plain fun This reviewer always gets a kick out of learning what mer analogues to life on the surface that the author has created There are analogues a plenty in this story but this reviewer is not going to spoil things by revealing what they are He s also not going spoil things by revealing the ending All he will reveal is that the final scenes in Awaiting Destiny are quite touching.Ms Schaefer has done a wonderful job of world building in this story and it is a well written story at that There are only two glaring errors that this reviewer feels he must point out There is no such thing as longitude 129 Longitude is denoted as anything from 90 to 90 degrees She refers to the flowing fin portion of a mer tail as flutes when the proper term is flukes This reviewer is going to put his BS in Biology to some use after all Don t let these very minor slip ups put you off It is well worth your time to read Awaiting Destiny and Ms Schaefer s skills as a story teller are quite good In fine, it is a fun and funny novel suitable for just about everyone While the story arc of Awaiting Destiny lends itself to a stand alone novel, there is plenty of room for one or two sequels and this reviewer hopes that Ms Schaffer will give this prospect due consideration.More reviews of Mer fiction may be found at The Parsons Rant

    For young readers who enjoy Emily Windsnap This readslike a Disney movie than a book, and I felt Destiny was too passive for most of the story The lack of tension and problem solving made it difficult to maintain interest, although there were some good world building parts I do appreciate reading lighter stories with humor, but ultimately that was not enough for a better rating.

    I liked the concept, but not how it was played out I felt like this was a less experienced author who wrote it There were a few grammatical errors The wasn t a lot of character development I also found that there was no I don t know you kind of awkwardness with the family she never met.
