Description: The Mers:
What lies beneath the surface?
One hundred years from now the world has
changed and brought with it new forms of life.
Who are the Mers? Who is Mira?
“I am not a Mer,” A simple but profound statement that changes Mira’s life forever. She always knew she was different. She never quite fit in with the Mers. However, when her quest to understand her past leads her across the border that divides two vastly different worlds, she thinks the journey to find out who she really is will be an easy one.
But, in Jersey she finds more questions than answers. The “Garden State” has become a convoluted mix of Aristocrats who hate the Mers, Pirates who want to sell them, and Magi who want to use them, finding her true identity will be a challenge, especially when her traveling companion is a Mer willing to fight to the death.
Reviews: "Overall this book was far different than I been reading and I did enjoy it. I am looking forward to see what the next book has to offer. Would I recommend yes, if you love YA Paranormal with a Dystopian twist then this book is for you."
