Contemporary fiction, low fantasy/magical realism and horror.
After thirty years, Emaleah returns to Blue Bottle Bay with her twin sister Myliah. But things are not as they appear. Being a Mira (or mermaid as they are known to land dwellers), Ema was not allowed to form attachments to humans, but she did anyway and now she is paying the price for her actions. Her sister is kidnapped and it’s up to Ema to rescue her. Along the way she teams up with others of her own kind in an attempt to right the wrongs of the past, but it is not going well for her. Mira society demands that she has got to pay for her indiscretion.
