MY READING EXPERIENCE: As I was no less than infatuated with this book, feeding my hunger for further knowledge and perspective on mermaids and aquatic mystique, I could not bear to see the final page. The way the author left it, I could just tell there was meant to be a sequel... so I emailed her. In return, I received a message from her darling husband explaining to me that his beloved Lisa had passed away a few years back and she had indeed planned to write a sequel. This man was even kind enough to reveal the secrets of Lena and her love, Nix and what was meant to happen in books 2 and 3. I could not have been more grateful and humbled by her Husband's heartfelt "thank you for keeping Lisa's imagination alive".
