Erika Lawrence is a young girl with a knack for swimming underwater without coming up for air for a consecutive amount of time; for her it's normal, to others, not so much. Though after taking one last swim in her high schools swimming pool while waiting for her best friend, she notice's something odd about her right eye, in the far bottom right corner of the iris she sees something off; there with the mix of lavender is a pigment of red that shouldn't be there. At first she shrugs it off, even though she's still concerned about it, but then on the day after her eighteenth birthday something happens. Strange visions appear in her mind throughout the nights of when she is asleep, alongside with the need for water, blood, the consumption of flesh and a supressed memory of her mother. All the while the red in her eye begins to grow...
Worried for her own sanity, she goes to her grandparents for guidance, asking them for some kind of answer to be given, if she truly had become something frightful, and what they tell her shocks her, the birthplace of her mother.
Wanting to know more about her mother's supposedly secret past Erika and her friend Alison Jones; head there in search for the truth, only to find that some things are best left to be forgotten...

I like mermaids because you never know whether they'll be evil or angelic until you get there?

The plot looks interesting & definitely different. In the blurb & here as well, typo mistake of 'she notice's' instead of ' she notices'. Reading on...
