But one day, something, someone,enigmatic and beyond his wildest dreams, rises from the ocean, seemingly for his eyes alone, and he realizes that his desire to break free of the cycle of boredom holding him down may be right before his very eyes.

This story helped me cope through with depression. I wanted to write a book to where I would actually read where it did not have the typical storyline for a mermaid falling in love with a human, or a mer prince/princess fighting to get back their kingdom. I started out writing on Wattpad and now I'm expanding to gain more possible readers wanting to read my book.
It was supposed to be a normal visit to her uncle's place. Everything was planned out to prevent anything from happening by her parents, but it didn't end that way in the end. After taking a dive in an underwater cave with her cousins, Lynae and Meredith, something changed within her. Ever since that day, Amelia, Lynae, and Meredith uncover more on their family's secret lineage resulting in them becoming something that they thought was not possible. Now showing their true scales, they adjust their lives into becoming more than just mermaids, but as the rightful rulers of the five water realms along with two mermen. They meet other merfolk along the way to help guide them into making each of their designated realm a better place for everyone. However, not everyone would agree with what the five rulers have in mind as for what is best. The main concern would be set on the five after they discovered that they each inherited a special power from each sibling. But with those powers come with great distress. Fearing that history may repeat itself, the mer are keeping a close eye on Amelia since she is the reincarnate of the one whom was good at heart but became corrupt to the very end resulting in her transforming into a great beast that terrorized the underwater kingdom. If you want to take a dive into an adventure that stretches around the world while witnessing the supernatural elements these mer face everyday, then you are in the right place. Come under and see why the merfolk are not just a fairytale, but a lost race that the humans have forgotten for over centuries.

Growing up in Jamaica, you hear all sorts of fantastical stories about beasts and creatures. Myths. The Rolling Calf, Ol' Higue, River Mumma, Anansi and his little friends. Well, what if I were to tell you that some of those creatures were real? That just below the surface of our world is a whole other universe waiting to brim over?* Please note, that although these things might be real, what I have written is fictional. Rolling Calves cannot, to the best of my knowledge, take human form. I have never heard of an obeah man or woman being immortal, and real obeah is much, much more complicated than what is written in this book.Some of the tags for this story, eg. werewolf/ loupgarou will appear later in this story. I used mermaid and siren as other names for river mumma. Witch is another name for obeah man/woman.
"Don't go through the indigo door. It leads to a horrible world!"
"Even more horrible than the world i am currently living in?" I thought.
"Marsy... Marswimmer Toriwave! Ocean to Marsy!"
"Huh? Oh sorry mum. I wasn't focused."
"Clearly... Did you hear what I said?"
"Yes I did. No going through the door. Horrible world... And so on, so forth."
"Now remember, who am I?"
"The Mermaid queen, Athena Toriwave. Why did I have to rehearse that?"
"So that you remember that I am Queen and you are the Princess of Mermaids! We have a reputation to uphold... My reputation!"
I knew that I'd break that rule... But didn't know that I'd hurt my mum in the worst way possible...
