Beskrivning från Goodreads:
Ana Dakkar is a freshman at Harding-Pencroft Academy, a five-year high school that graduates the best marine scientists, naval warriors, navigators, and underwater explorers in the world. Ana's parents died while on a scientific expedition two years ago, and the only family she's got left is her older brother, Dev, also a student at HP. Ana's freshman year culminates with the class's weekend trial at sea, the details of which have been kept secret. She only hopes she has what it'll take to succeed. All her worries are blown out of the water when, on the bus ride to the ship, Ana and her schoolmates witness a terrible tragedy that will change the trajectory of their lives.


But wait, there's more. The professor accompanying them informs Ana that their rival school, Land Institute, and Harding-Pencroft have been fighting a cold war for a hundred and fifty years. Now that cold war has been turned up to a full broil, and the freshmen are in danger of becoming fish food. In a race against deadly enemies, Ana will make amazing friends and astounding discoveries about her heritage as she puts her leadership skills to the test for the first time.

Kommentarer:
Daughter of the Deep är Riordans senaste bok och den var så bra! Denna är faktiskt inte inspirerad av mytologi som alla hans tidigare böcker, utan det är en slags retelling på En världsomsegling under havet, och det var så bra!

Handlingen var spännande, full av oväntade vändningar och som Riordans andra böcker, även underhållande. Jag gillade verkligen karaktärerna och att de alla var så nördiga på sina egna sätt.

Citat:
“I hold up two fingers. 'How many fingers?'

He squints. 'Twenty-five?'

'Yeah, you'll be fine.”

Betyg 8/10
