Laura Dockrill makes a dramatic return to the sea in this fantastical follow-up to her genre-busting mermaid story, Lorali.
It has been two years since Rory drowned, and Lorali is in Hastings, living the quiet life of a normal teenage girl. But her safe life on land won't last for long. Life in The Whirl has become a hotbed of underwater politics and as the council jostles to oust the king, one Mer in particular has her eye on Lorali as the key to her own rise to power.
Meanwhile, Aurabel, a lowly Mer from the wrong side of the trench, is attacked by sea beasts and left for dead - and without a tail. Raging with righteous anger, she rebuilds herself a mechanical tail and reinvents herself as a fearless steampunk Mer seeking revenge. But she never expected the most important job that was about to drop into her lap.
With selkies, amusement parks, fanged teeth and fake legs, Laura Dockrill's imagination has once again exploded any pre-conceived ideas about Mer culture and created a curious, hilarious, riotous adventure not to be missed.
