In the first installment, Deep Blue, we are introduced to a world separate from our own—that of the merpeople. Serafina, a mermaid, awakens on the day of her betrothal to an even bigger worry than winning the heart of her future husband, Prince Mahdi; her mother’s shot by an assassin with a poisoned arrow. To stop a war from beginning, she must go in search of five mermaids who can help her uncover a dark force that threatens to end all of their worlds.
During the second book, Rogue Wave, Serafina’s found the other mermaids and is faced with a heavy burden, discovering they’re all descendants of the Six Who Ruled, the long-gone leaders of the lost city of Atlantis. The same evil that destroyed that empire is threatening to do even more harm to the world, unless they find the magical talisman that belonged to the Six. The search proves dangerous for all of them.
When we catch up with the mermaids in Dark Tide, the battle is on. While Serafina works to stave off the enemy and gain support for the cause, the other members of the Six are facing their own challenges. Once again, loyalties, friendships and love will all be tested, as they finish their search for the final talismans.
