Mera is teenage royalty, heir to the throne of Xebel, the other not-so-lost colony under the sea. But Mera is destined to wear a different crown, that of Atlantis. When the inhabitants of Xebel plot to overthrow their homeland of Atlantis, Mera is sent to kill the heir to the throne, Arthur Curry. As the unrest between their colonies grows, Mera and Arthur unexpectedly fall in love... will Arthur Curry be the king at Mera's side in Atlantis, or will he die under her blade? 

Mera by Danielle Paige is an astonishing story that explores themes of duty, love, heroism, and freedom, all through the eyes of readers' favorite undersea royalty.

My Thoughts:
With her world and people at risk, sixteen-year-old Princess Mera, is willing to do whatever it takes, even if that means killing the heir to the enemy. But Mera soon finds that Arthur Curry is not who she thought. 

I really loved the illustrations in this, especially all the underwater scenes with the sea creatures! I did think the colors and tones were too muted, almost like someone added a pale filter, and wished the blues were brighter.

I'll admit that I didn't know Mera existed before I saw Aquaman. I love art and illustration but I've always preferred a good chapter book over comics, to be honest, but the movies are good fun. I've gotten more into graphic novels as an adult though and after reading this, I'm looking forward to more of from DC Ink.
