Unable to tell anyone about the mermaids, Shayna and her friends are forced to solve the mystery before it’s too late, and in doing so, Shayna will finally have to face the full force of her powers.

Excerpt From Chapter One:
As I swam, I felt a tangle of seaweed touch my ankle and told myself not to panic; it was one of the few things in the water that truly just creeped me out. I kicked it away from my foot and continued on. My fingers were becoming numb and I was developing an ache in my stomach. Again the seaweed brushed thickly against my leg. I bit back the yelp that threatened to come out and kicked away again, but this time I couldn’t swim free of it.
“Oh shit, a kelp bed!” I swore, trying to alter my route by turning towards the shore, but as I swam away, I felt the tendrils of the slimy leaves wrap around my calves. I stopped swimming, pulling my legs under me and treading water to see what had happened, but just as I started to lift my caught leg out of the water, I felt a sharp cut and cried out as the salt water seared the injury.
It took me a moment not to succumb to the panic, knowing I was out here alone and didn’t have that luxury. When my pulse was under control, I gave my leg an experimental tug only to have it pulled back, pulling me under the water. I had a split second’s warning to take in a lungful of air before I was completely submerged. When I opened my eyes, I was staring into two very large, very black eyes that were set into a pale greenish white face that seemed to glow under the water.
The face was terrible to look at, both hideous and somehow beautiful. I felt the scream building inside me, but knew I would lose what little time I had if I let out that breath. The creature was still holding on to my leg, and I saw on its free hand the long nightmarish nails that were as black as the eyes. A tongue flicked out between its parted lips, reminding me of a snake testing the air, before it tilted its head to the side, and then suddenly it was swimming away, pulling me along with it.
Again, instinct told me to fight it, but intuition told me this was the way to Toby, and if I fought it, I knew I would lose, if the strength in its one hand was anything to go by. I felt the trajectory of our path change suddenly and we broke the surface of the water, arcing into the air like a dolphin. I took the chance to breathe before we went under again. As the creature came up and out of the water, from the odd angle I was trailing at, I caught a glimpse of it and, though my mind tried to refuse to register what my eyes were seeing, there was no doubt I caught the flick of a fish tale glinting in the sunlight.
