Instead, Lorcan whisks him off to the underground realm of the Leprechauns, where, alongside Eve, he’s forced to prepare to become one of them.

Also, the cover (created by fantastic artist M.S. Corley, who did The Mermaid's Sister's cover) is breathtakingly gorgeous! In mermaid news... The Mermaid's Sister passed the 100,000 copy mark in sales back in October. Thanks, readers! I'm awed and thrilled that the book has done well and continues to do well. It's a dream come true for certain
