Alex knows she is different. She’s plagued by nightmares that feel shockingly real and an intense restlessness she cannot explain. As the long hot summer holidays stretch before her, Alex seeks out adventure in the rugged mountains of Injasuthi.
But during a camping trip to the mystic jade pools, Alex meets Merrick, a boy who tells her the shocking truth about herself, and Alex's nightmare is about to become reality. Because Alex is no ordinary teenager...she is a half-mermaid and her adventures are only just beginning.
The first book in The Mermaid Legacy
Book One: Water
Book Two: Fire
Natasha Hardy began writing one August evening when she needed to escape. Her stories are birthed from her childhood adventures, seasoned by the lives of the explorers who make up her ancestry, and woven through with the intrigue of Africa. She spends most of her time-happily- in a world of words, and the rest trying to keep up with her husband and their two gorgeously mischievous little boys.
Just when Alexandra was getting used to the fact that she is half-mermaid, her beloved Merrick is captured by ruthless Oceanid Neith.
Neith will stop at nothing to crush Alex to his will and has only one condition of release: She must start a war against humans who are destroying the ocean so that he can become ruler of land and sea. If not, Neith promises to destroy the underwater world Alex has grown to love.
Alex is torn. She cannot fight against humans, but risks bring the fire of hell to her underwater home. Desperate and alone she roams the ocean, until she discovers that other Oceanids are prepared to fight against cruel Neith. Now Alex must become the leader she is fated to be and train an army to fight for their own freedom and that of the entire human race, before it is too late...
