A fun and fast-paced young adult read that is set in a beautifully created and interesting world. Aemi was also an awesome character, though she is a slave, she is confident, strong, and smart. She has made friends and knows how to throw a spear. The city under the sea is very well described, the world building was very imaginative; I could picture the gardens, the rooms with the ocean sky-views and even the ships. Although, I did wish a little more was explained as to why the People of the Sea were down there in the first place and how they had all of this advanced technology when the people on land did not. Anyway, I enjoyed Aemi and Nol's adventures underwater along with the plot twist about Aemi's past near the end. Also, there is not really a focus on any love story so far and that was nice to see in a YA novel. Aemi is left with a lot of decisions to make at the end of Sea and Stone and I will check out the rest of the books in the series to see what happens.
