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.

"An exciting and romantic look at a lesser known superhero, for DC comics followers and newcomers alike." —School Library Journal

"Mera is a compelling, easy-to-admire character. She readily proves her worthiness as a warrior, and readers will see in her plenty of parallels to Wonder Woman. This graphic novel is sure to be a hit.”  —Booklist

"Paige has rendered a sassy, take-no-prisoners heroine who may look like Disney's Ariel but who is imbued with grit and substance.” —Kirkus Reviews
 
"Mera: Tidebreaker offers a riveting new portrayal of the ocean's fiercest princess. With her passion, strength, and willfulness, Mera is sure to capture the hearts of both long-time readers and those who are discovering Atlantis for the first time." --Marissa Meyer, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Lunar Chronicles 

"Mera: Tidebreaker will pull readers through the waves and down into an immersive world full of intrigue, heroism and romance. This royally enchanting origin story will captivate you until the very last page and leave you questioning what you'd do if you had to pick between love and duty. A must-read!" --Sasha Alsberg, New York Timesbestselling author of Zenith



My Review: OMG I read this after watching the movie and I was just so excited to read it.  This was one great story and I really wished that Paige could write a full-length story about Mera because for us she was the shining light in the Aquaman movie.  This comic was a great story with amazing colors.  It made the story come alive on the page and I could not put it down.
