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.

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

School Library Journal Review!

I just got my first peek at School Library Journal's review of Forbidden Sea in their September issue. They loved it! School Library Journal is one of the biggest tools youth services librarians use when purchasing materials for their libraries. It means a lot to an author to get a good review in their magazine. I've read SLJ's reviews for years as a librarian myself, but I never imagined that one day MY book would receive such a great review there! Click here if you'd like to read the review for yourself. There are quite a few reviews so you'll have to scroll down the page a bit to the find the Forbidden Sea review. The list is in alphabetical order by last name of the author. Look under "Nielson" to find it.
