Fairies and Magic
O’Neill is back and we get a back story this time. Love stories are messed up by curses, and unrequited love for a mermaid (starts out as a girl and changes to her true nature). O’Neill, Clara, and Maren could have been raised together except for the curse that separates Ezra and Verity. Clara believes she will also transform into a stork but it turns out to be a misunderstanding. There is enough evil around to keep the story interesting; Dr. Phipps, who uses control and trickery to keep his menagerie in line.

There is no cure for being who you really are…
In a cottage high atop Llanfair Mountain, sixteen-year-old Clara lives with her sister, Maren, and guardian Auntie. By day, they gather herbs for Auntie’s healing potions; by night, Auntie spins tales of faraway lands and wicked fairies. Clara’s favorite story tells of three orphaned infants—Clara, who was brought to Auntie by a stork; Maren, who arrived in a seashell; and their best friend, O’Neill, who was found beneath an apple tree.
One day, Clara discovers iridescent scales just beneath her sister’s skin: Maren is becoming a mermaid and must be taken to the sea or she will die. So Clara, O’Neill, and the mermaid-girl set out for the shore. But the trio encounters trouble around every bend. Ensnared by an evil troupe of traveling performers, Clara and O’Neill must find a way to save themselves and the ever-weakening Maren.
And always in the back of her mind, Clara wonders, if my sister is a mermaid, then what am I?
