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

Forbidden Sea Book Trailer Update!

You would not believe all the trouble we've had, getting the Forbidden Sea book trailer finished. It took six months alone for the latex mermaid tail to come--and then we didn't really end up using it much. But the trailer is (finally) almost complete now--and it turned out LOVELY!  There are still a few tweaks that need to be made to it before it is ready to make its debut to the public, so you'll have to be patient just a little bit longer. As a teaser, I'm including a photograph of the actress who played Adrianne for us. She did a fabulous job too. I can't wait to let you all see it.

Soon . . .

This is one of the books I heard about once, thought it sounded good, and was a little too excited to read it when I got it. I have always loved mermaids and this book quenched my thirst I had been having for a little mermaid magic.

First of all, I want to talk about the setting. It was so amazing. A breathtaking island set in... I could never figure out that part. It lets your imagination go wild on which time period it could have taking time in. I'm thinking 1700's, but could be totally off. The other setting... I'll just let you read and figure out the magic of that place!

The characters are what make this book so great. I loved each and every one of them. And their complexity was such a relief, something you don't get a lot of in YA or MG. I actually liked the main character! And her family and friends were believable also. The mermaids... you need to read more to find out about them!
