A stunning debut novel by bestselling adult novelist Michelle Lovric. Part fairy-tale, part historical fiction, this is writing that is alight and alive. Two worlds are held in balance, Venice on the cusp of change, as science exerts an ever stronger stranglehold against a deeper, underwater world of myth and mermaids. A beautifully told allegory that captures the power of language, this has definite crossover appeal. Jake Hope, The Bookseller

Michelle Lovric

Atmospheric, beautifully written and about Venice - A superb volume of adventure encompassing all that makes a good solid read. Includes ghosts, retribution, death, mermaids, seahorses, bravery - Absolutely brilliant. Read it in Venice if you can, if not, then read it and visit as soon as you can....
