Description

While on vacation, Emily Windsnap finds herself swept up in an ancient prophecy as the New York Times best-selling series continues.Emily is headed to a tropical island for a relaxing vacation with friends and family. And this time, Emily promises her best friend, Shona, there will be absolutely no adventure — just plenty of fun. But somehow excitement always seems to find Emily, and before she knows it, she ends up on the other side of a powerful waterfall on a forgotten island no one else can get to. Well, no one that isn't a half-mer like Emily and her boyfriend, Aaron. The people who live on the island believe in a prophecy that foretells how they can be saved from an imminent, devastating earthquake — and this prophecy seems to revolve around Emily and Aaron, as well as a mysterious, mythic giant. Will they be able to find the giant — and fulfill the prophecy — before it's too late?

        When Liz was quite young (about eight) she wanted to be a poet. She grew up and did lots of other things, but then in 1999 she suddenly realized she wanted to write a book. She says, "It was as though I'd remembered what I'd always wanted to do, and I've never looked back."

        About mermaids, she says, "I am fascinated by the sea and all the mysteries of the ocean. It's so huge and there is so much of it that we haven't discovered and know nothing about. To me, mermaids represent the possibilities of what might just exist, on the edges of our imaginations and our world."

        Liz recently spent a year traveling around Europe in a camper van with her best friend and her dog, Poppy. She lives in England.

        January 15, 2018
        Following her adventures in Emily Windsnap and the Ship of Souls (2015), part-mermaid Emily finds an idyllic island vacation disrupted by an ancient prophecy.Thirteen-year-old Emily's "an adventure magnet." After promising her mermaid best friend, Shona, she will "not be tempted by adventures, risks, or mysteries for at least one month," Emily arrives on a secluded island with Shona, her parents, and her "semi-mer" boyfriend and instantly stumbles onto another adventure. During a boat tour to nearby Forgotten Island, thought to be uninhabited and inaccessible, Emily and Shona explore behind the waterfall and are literally swept into a "whole new world" where Emily overhears people discussing a prophecy about an impending disastrous earthquake. On a second visit to Forgotten Island, Emily becomes lost in a maze of tunnels and encounters the same people, who convince her she's the answer to their prophecy about a girl with a fish tail finding a giant who saves the island. Conflicted by her promise to Shona and her desire to save the island's inhabitants, Emily enlists her boyfriend's help. Emily's fast-paced, first-person narration lends immediacy to her latest quixotic quest, one that tests the bonds of friendship and closes with a surprising twist. Spot art reinforces the maritime theme; friendship and relationship angst ground the story emotionally. Both humans and mer-people seem to be white.Exciting new adventures, risks, and mysteries for Emily Windsnap fans. (Fantasy. 8-12)
