Book review:

❝It takes pride to create, not to destroy❞

‘Merjella’ is an underwater fantasy book. The story is about Jella, an octopus raised by her mentor, Mimic who is also the ruler of Zypher(an underwater city). Jella’s father, the king of zypher was killed by evil Chiro and then Jella was only left with her two best friends named Bingo and Qwerty.

While Marina is a prominent scientist whose inventions are conferred into wrong hands , thereby putting everybody at risk. Jello saves marina while she was left to die underwater. Together they both discover their scenarios and evolve as Marjella to take up their respective vengeance.

The interlacing of marine world with humans is absolutely delightful. The characterisation of underwater creature is exquisitely done. Also facts related to the characters of the story are provided at the end of each chapter.

The book is all about friendship, family, teamwork and overcoming your fears. It is filled with information on underwater species that will elucidate the readers about marine life. Author’s words of choice is lucid, intelligible and extremely convenient for children. I found this book somewhere between fun and loops of emotions and somewhat reminded me of Oswald and Finding Nemo. Totally enjoyed the read.

Thanks to @samvedna_ for sending over the review copy.🌻
