Deep, deep down, many fathoms below the ocean’s surface, the sea holds a wealth of secrets, and the Mer Kingdom of Atlantisite…

Throughout the years, faeries have been forgotten, downtrodden and misrepresented. Especially in books! They are not a figment of the human imagination.

In fact, I was lucky enough to meet one and to learn of the Land they inhabit. So now I have a tale to tell…

When the mermaid, Aqua Marine, rescues a boy who is drowning at sea, she becomes obsessed with the need to save him. Hearing of buried treasure – a sacred chalice which offers eternal youth – she feels this could be the magic answer. But Aqua Marine is not the only one seeking the legendary Holy Grail. A motley pirate crew, an ancient shipwreck and a brutal skeleton army all stand in the way.

With the help of Rosie Quartz and her friends, will the treasure hunters succeed?

Or will Aqua realise that sometimes the right thing to do is to just let go?
