Shearwater – a young adult mermaid fantasy

MERMAIDS ARE REAL…
And they’re going to kill us all. 

My life was ripped away from me when my parents died in a car accident. After moving to Ireland to live with a grandfather I didn’t even know existed, I discovered my mother’s past was filled with unresolved drama – dark secrets screaming to be uncovered. Strange things keep happening around me. Happening to me. Is it because of Sebastian, the golden-haired hunk who showed up in town at the same time as I did? Or Ethan, the brooding hottie locals whisper plays with dark magic?

Maybe both… or neither. But someone is definitely out to get me, and I need to figure out why, and fast. I’m discovering powers of my own–powers I can’t contain. If I don’t discover who is after me or the real reason my mother fled Ireland, more people are going to die.
