The Florence Waverley series:

Zombie sighting:
I saw them hover gracefully. And right then, I knew they were not mindless zombies.
-chapter 16, location 1976

A dire prophecy has emerged, and the mer believe that humans and merfolk are in grave danger. Terror is closing in, but only one person holds the key to stopping it: Florence Waverley. However, her mission to save two worlds will lead her far, far out into the Darkness--a shadow-realm full of monsters, magic, and wicked tides that could tear apart bodies.

With the help of her friends, Florry must uncover a secret about humans and mer. A long-lost secret that could change her life. And above all else, she must fight hard to light the darkness. Everything depends on her mission: her friends, her world, and the one she loves.

The past, present, and future are about to collide--but can she stay afloat? One way or another, nothing will be the same when she enters the Darkness...


My two-bits:

An under-the-sea story continues told with a light tone.

The main character, Florry, who is human continues to learn about the underwater world history and inhabitants which includes a dark side of things appropriately named the Darkness.

Florry also experiences a coming of age moment where she confronts her parents and her place in both worlds.

This story had more action in regards to battling a bad guy.
