Product Description

“It’s like The Little Mermaid for adults. I couldn't stop reading.” ★★★★★

When my parents died in an accident, they left me like a piece of furniture to a grandfather I never knew existed. In Ireland. As if moving halfway around the world wasn't bad enough, I soon learned my mother had left behind some unresolved drama - dark secrets that were screaming to be uncovered. And then there are the things I can't explain. Strange things keep happening around me. Happening to me. Is it because of Sebastian, the golden-haired stranger who showed up in town at the same time as I did? Or Ethan, the kid locals whisper plays with dark magic?

Maybe both. Maybe neither. But someone is definitely out to get me, and I need to figure out why, and fast... because I'm discovering powers of my own. Powers that I can't contain. And no matter what I do or who is to blame, if I don't discover the real reason my mother fled Ireland, more people are going to die.

And they're going to kill us all.

“Not just another Twilight—even though we do have sparkly mermaids instead of sparkly vampires. But the story itself is well told and the characters act and respond like real people instead of cardboard cutouts. The mystic premise of the mer-people is even almost believable in the context of the Irish coastal culture, and the interactions between the characters are more encompassing than just the make-believe of the story. Although it's written for young adults, as a mainstream adult I found the story entertaining and readable, and even subscribed to the author's site to get the next installment as well as his other books.” ★★★★★

“The author's writing and editing is impeccable, and his research is substantial. I feel like I’m at the exotic locales described. His backstory and science behind the mermaid phenomenon is solidly explained and more than adequate to suspend my disbelief. The author also presents a lot of this backstory as not an info-dump, so kudos for that.” ★★★★★

>>This is "Part One" of the full book - you can get the full book for free on my website.<<

Shearwater is a young adult mermaid novel that will appeal to lovers of paranormal romance, urban fantasy, witches, Irish mythology, supernatural folklore and, of course, mermaids.
