Deep under Arctic waters lies an ice kingdom carved into a glacier. Those who dwell within it possess magnificent biological secrets. Due to the dangers of impending war, the Princess of Adlivun is forced to flee her undersea utopia and regroup with her sisters in Alaska.

Captain Trevain Murphy is a successful king crab fisherman who has spent his life building his empire above the sea, and knows nothing of the empire beneath it. When he meets a mysterious dancer whose father has recently died, he extends kindness towards her, unaware of her unique genetics and royal lineage.

Trevain’s attraction to the enigmatic Aazuria Vellamo will involve him in dangerous designs that will forever change his life, and his perspective on himself and his world. He embarks on perilous journeys in which he will need to release all of his insecurities and inhibitions in order to survive.

What they’re saying about it:

“You know you’ve read a great book when you’re still thinking about the characters long after you’ve finished the story!… The world that Ms. Scrieva has created is an absolutely enthralling – and very believable – one. I’m not a big fan of fantastical stories about mermaids, but her mermaids make complete and perfect sense. It’s all about science and biology, with a little bit of mythology and lots of romance. I adored every page of the book!”

“Harry Potter enchanted Wizards, Drowning Mermaids enchanted Mermaids. The vivid imagery and sharpness of the characters put you right into the story. … The author has a way of breathing life into the experiences you read about in the story that is utterly invigorating. In the way that Rowling ruffled our imagination with the possibility that wizards live among us and maybe *we* could be a wizard, Nadia has done this with Mermaids. The author keeps this majestic story grounded with roots based on fact, you can tell she put her research hat on in writing this story. … Reading it was an adrenaline rush from beginning to end with many twists characteristic of the author’s work. … To truly appreciate the story and the characters, you really just have to dive in!”

There is no divorce in the undersea kingdom of Adlivun. Marriage is a bond that lasts until death—even if death comes in several centuries, and in that time your spouse happens to become your sworn enemy. This is the conflict that General Visola Ramaris faces when she learns that the mighty Vachlan is behind the attacks on her kingdom. She has sworn to protect Adlivun with her life, but long ago, she also swore to love and honor her husband…

Visola must choose whether she will destroy Vachlan once and for all, or attempt the hardest thing conceivable: communication. After two hundred years of desertion, she has no faith in their feeble bond and knows she can never forgive him. When he threatens the person dearest to her, she must take action. Confronting Vachlan on enemy territory would be nothing short of suicide. She knows that if she falls into his custody, the deranged man would relish breaking her down and making her lose her sanity.

Princess Aazuria forbids Visola from taking matters into her own hands; she will do anything it takes to protect her friend from the man who wants to crush her. Alas, Visola is a crazy, uncontrollable warrior woman with the blood of Vikings in her veins. Why would she ever consider doing the safe and predictable thing?

What they’re saying about it:

“The core of this book is the story of Visola, whom one cannot help but admire after understanding what she has gone through and how far she is willing to go in life for sake of her honor. There are so many ‘heights’ to this book that embody the build-up of admiration and sympathy for the characters. As one could expect in a book that is so strongly about Visola, there are so many funny parts to the book.

There are some dark parts to this story that add to the magnitude of it. The author has a great talent for giving you a reason to hate the bad guys.

In a corner of my mind I realize that this story shows us the potential of all of the characters. If Visola’s story can be so compelling, I am excited to learn more about the other characters. I cannot say enough how much I loved her story and I am eager to share it with my fiance and my friends!”
