‘The current grows stronger, the ocean
hungry for revenge . . . ’
Set in an ominous underwater world
marred by human destruction, the stories
in Mer unsettle traditional mermaid
mythology – beyond gender, beyond
beauty, beyond romance.
Merfolk have ruled their watery domain
for untold years, but humans threaten it
with deadly danger. Stranded and alone,
Odel haunts an abandoned lake. Ondine
drags her prey to a graveyard of their own
making. Unzel pursues a threatening boat.
Nothing left to lose, the merfolk will do
whatever it takes to defend their home –
no matter who gets in their way.
