I can almost guarantee that I was the only person in the city that was hosing off their deck in the rain… in her robe. I oddly don’t mind gardening in the rain. Weeding is easier for sure. I actually had no intention of gardening today. I went outside to watch the rain for a bit, and then one thing lead to another. Next thing I knew I was rearranging plants and cleaning the deck. No sense doing all that work, and not hosing off the thin layer of dirt dust that was all over the place. I popped my head back in the house to pick out a few books for you, but I am heading back out. The rain has kept me indoors for so long that I have a bit of cabin fever. Might be a good time to plant a few tulip bulbs while I am at it! I will change out of my robe to do it though. FUN!!

4.7 Stars (91 Reviews)
Genre: Teen & Young Adult

FREE for a limited time

Haelo Marley lives every day as a lie. She is a mermaid, but not the fishtail-and-seashell-bra type. A real mermaid. A Candeon, posing as a normal, San Diego teenager in her last year of high school, while secretly diving into the sea in order to survive.

But Haelo’s not the only one keeping secrets. There’s a lot she doesn’t know about the Candeon world, and about the vital role she’s expected to play in it. Every mystery she unravels — from the meaning of the mosaic of scales on her back, to the identity of Dagger, the mysterious boy down the street — draws Haelo closer to a fate that she never chose, and to danger that she never imagined.

No longer able to safely stay in San Diego, Haelo makes her way toward the destiny (and the secret fiancé) waiting for her in the Candeon capital of Pankyra, with Dagger as her guard. But as she and Dagger grow closer, the lines between duty and desire become blurred, threatening the future of the entire Candeon Empire.

Fans of paranormal suspense, ancient folklore, and slow-burn romance will love this epic, coming-of-age fantasy series about the battle between the things we love, the things we choose, and the things that are chosen for us.
