Kveto's Thoughts:

A cool concept kinda wasted here as the entire book takes place with you magically swimming underwater. Despite this, everything pretty much works as it would on the surface, except the villains are mostly fish types.

There are one or two memorable scenes, like being forced by a ghost to collect his bones and a fencing lesson from a fish named Cyrano (which increases your skill after one lesson. What a teacher!).

Nothing new here, despite appearances.
