About my story ‘Sea of Sorrows’
What could a shapeshifting siren know about love?
When ocean-dwelling shapeshifter Mairg is mistaken for Erik’s missing fiancée, she reluctantly agrees to help him find his love in order to protect her sisters. Erik gives her hope of a life free from killing, and she soon finds herself falling for him.
But her search for Aisla dredges up memories that Mairg’s guardian, the sea hag, would rather forget. Will Mairg fight against her own kin to save the girl Erik loves? Or will she embrace her monstrous nature and keep him for herself?
