Being a mermaid brings a new depth to ‘it’s complicated.

High school teen Mariah’s life is anything but simple.  Between a crush on her best friend and a rivalry brewing with the swim team star, her powers awaken early.  

When Mariah’s guardian meddles in her life with magic, she causes more harm than good.  The soul reapers are coming and there’s a werewolf hungry for merblood.  All secrets wash ashore sooner or later, and Mariah’s about to discover hers.

Mixing a messy love life with deadly powers will whip up a storm of trouble.  Can Mariah contain it or will she be swept up in its wake?

A gripping story about a mermaid, self acceptance, and romance that literally sparks.



I sighed. “I’m trying to avoid Murray.”

“Are you really?” Ana said in an over-inquisitive way that told me she knew more than I thought.

“What do you think you know?” I asked as my eyebrows raised.

Ana’s face lit up. “I heard Murray’s taking you to the dance.”

“That’s what he thinks, but I’m not going.”

“Why not? He’s hot.”

I rolled my eyes. “And super arrogant.”

Ana shrugged. “It’s confidence.”

“Are you on his side or mine? Plus, Mum warned me to stay away from him and the pool.”

I blushed, realising I’d said too much. Now Ana would think I’m crazy when I explain about Mum's visions.

“So? What does it matter what your mum says? She can’t stop you.”

Ana didn’t get why I was taking Mum’s warning seriously. She hadn’t seen her magic or the way her predictions came true.

“She’s a psychic. She wouldn’t have warned me unless something bad is going to happen. I mustn’t let him kiss me.” I blushed deeper as soon as the words came out of my mouth.

Ana squealed. “Your mum had a vision of you making out?”

“Ana, please. And, she could stop me. She’s a frigging witch.”

“Does she cast spells?” Ana’s eyes widened.

“Sometimes.” I wish I could shut up.

“Hold up! Do you cast spells? Like a witch -like a wizard - like Harry fucking Potter? Oh my god, that’s so cool!”

“Ana, keep your voice down!”

Ana bit her lip to suppress her excitement. “Can you teach me magic?”
