They found the dead girl on my birthday.And I’m not entirely sure that her killer isn’t the boy I just tried to kiss.The longer I spend in Ireland, the deeper my life seems to unravel. Whisperings of a dark secret that caused my mother to flee from her homeland. Run-ins with a pair of undeniably handsome and strangely mysterious guys. A sleep-walking adventure that nearly got me killed. The nearness of the moon and the ocean would be almost romantic, if I wasn’t being hunted for powers I didn’t know I possessed. Not everything in mythology is just a story.Not every fairy-tale is harmless.Magic is very, very real… but so are the monsters from your worst nightmares.Now I’m being chased by immortals, hunted by wizards, and forced to pick sides in a supernatural war I want no part of.I might be the only one who can stop it.But it will mean giving up the one thing my heart can’t bear to lose.WHAT READERS ARE SAYING “This book called my soul and I answered with all my heart. A love story as big as the ocean, secrets that are unraveled and a lot of excitement. Wow – no words. Read the book, you won’t be disappointed.” -Amazon Review ★★★★★ “Mere folk, magic, monsters, and romance detailed out in a very crisp, twisted, and complex story that will keep you up reading this one until the very end.” -Amazon Review ★★★★★ “A thrilling urban fantasy romance set in Ireland. The story revolves around Irish mythology and the clash between an ancient race of witches and the merrow (mermaids), who are preparing to wipe out civilization. Fans of Percy Jackson, Nancy Drew and Twilight will love this epic adventure that keeps you guessing till the last page.” -Imlovingbooks.com ★★★★★ “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 the COMPLETE first book of the Ocean Depths Series; it includes parts One and Two and is almost 140,000 words long.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.
