The Odyssey of Danae

How far would you go to return home?

“Rule number four: never leave this island on your own.”

“Why not?”

“Because you won’t get far, trust me.”

“Mmm-kay.” Was that a threat or a warning? I don’t think either made me feel any better, but the latter had a challenge ring to it. I had no sea lore and wasn’t the most comfortable person on water and yet ‘we’ll see about that,’ was all I kept thinking.

“Rule number five—”

“How many more are there?” I interrupted him. He gave me one of his patent squint-glare.

“It’s the last one,” he answered, “and it’s the most important one. Rule number five: when I go to bed, you go to bed. No questions asked. You shut all doors and windows, blow all lights out and there’s no getting up until dawn.”

Danae and her clan are among the last mermaids in this world. To fight off extinction, they 'fish' men and hope for a turn in fortune. But if Danae thought that life under the sea was arduous, she is about to experience just how difficult life on the land is. Especially since being kidnapped by none other than the men of the desert. But perhaps the prince's fascination with her beauty could save the stranded mermaid...
