Shadow in the Sea

Readers will return to Windwaithe Island once again. When sixteen-year-old Sadelyn Hanson washes up on the shores of Windwaithe Island, her beauty and the strange marks on her wrist make superstitious locals suspect she is a mermaid. Feigning amnesia, Sade hides a far worse secret: she was sailing to her own murder trial when she was thrown overboard by the real killer, the cunning and cruel Captain Westwood.

Sade's quiet effort to rebuild her life on the island is threatened when she meets an actual young merman. Unable to speak his language, Sade still longs for the warm companionship he offers, despite the locals' dire legends about merfolk and their dark magic. But her confused feelings for the impossible boy become the least of her problems when Captain Westwood's ship docks at Windwaithe. With nowhere to escape, Sade must trust in the one person who doesn't fear the merfolk. A woman who had dealings with them herself—years ago

And Even More Reviews

Another review has turned up, this one from Kiss the book. The reviewer this time is a middle school student. It's extra fun to see what my target audience has to say about Forbidden Sea. Check it out by clicking the link above.

Scholastic must be handing out the ARCs left and right these days because reviews of Forbidden Sea are popping up all over the internet. Here is one from Ellie over at Ellz Readz. Thanks for your kind words Ellie--so glad you liked it. And if anyone else liked the book and is planning to write a review in the near future, send me an email when you do and I'll be sure to put a link to it here.

The mermaid sculpture doll I've been working on is almost complete. She has turned out beautifully, even if I do say so myself. : ) I'll post pictures of her as soon as she is finished.

Every time I read a review, I get more excited to read Forbidden Sea! Unfortunately, Scholastic said they don't send to outside the U.S., so I can't put my hands on a copy before its release. Neither my only book-blogger friend does live in the U.S. So it seems to be impossible for now. :( Although, there's this giveaway I just entered... Which I'm truly confident to win.
