The sea isn’t safe. Only the bravest and strongest become sailors. Luminescent mermaids roam the depths and the shallows, mouthing words no one can hear, never surfacing.
Raised all his life in an island fishing village, bookish Emerson Kadwell has always been warned away from the shore. But an infant memory of a song and the lapping of waves continually draw him.
When Emerson finds a mermaid stranded in an isolated part of the shoreline, the truth about his past and hers will change his world forever.
A luminescent mermaid. A bookish inventor. A terrible truth.
Shallows is a clean YA fantasy novel with elements of paranormal and romance. It is the first in a series.
