"Princess Mera is teenage royalty and heir to the throne of Xebel, a penal colony ruled by the other no-so-lost land under the sea, Atlantis. Her father, his court and the entire kingdom are expecting her to marry and introduce a new king, but Mera is destined to wear a different crown. When the Xebellian military plots to overthrow Atlantis and break free of its oppressive regime, Mera seizes the opportunity to take control over her own destiny by assassinating Arthur Curry--the long-lost prince and heir to the kingdom of Atlantis. But her mission gets sidetracked when Mera and Arthur unexpectedly fall in love. Will Arthur Curry be the king at Mera's side, or will he die under her blade as she attempts to free her people from persecution?"-- Provided by publisher.

A great comic! The heroine is spunky bad ass and feminine! Perfect combination in my opinion. Cute spin on the little mermaid story, definitely needs a sequel!

After seeing Mera in the recently released movie from this ocean world, this graphic novel enhanced my appreciation of the bravery and initiative of this DC character, who previously knew very little about. This storyline is different from the movie, but this will not surprise those who are familiar with the difference of stories in print and movie adaptations. . Mera’s attempts to fit into human society was hilarious and mellowed out the instances when she was thinking about her darkish plan to gain the marine throne. I liked the inclusion of supportive female friends from her ocean life as well as the contrast between Arthur, future Aquaman, and her manipulative suitor, Larken. Not surprising, Byrne’s marine scenes were my favorite with their delightful colors, contrast, and featured animals. I also loved the contrast of Mera’s well-known red hair against the mostly muted colors of each panel. Paige’s story should expand Mera’s fandom among teens.
