    Jonas is a young teen who's family has been cursed for generations by the Nereids, an ancient tribe of magical merfolk living at the very bottom of an ocean gorge. Liriope is a member of the Nereids. Ignorant of the curse, Liriope longs to visit the surface and collect what she thinks are willing human hosts for her tribe. Able to communicate with the dead, Jonas must find a way to break the curse before he is taken by Liriope herself, and lost to the deep blue forever.

Poor guy! Why can't he break the family curse if one of their abilities is to be able to break any witches curse? I'm excited to read the rest of this!

Jonas has been in the dark about the curse, and his family has lost most of its history throughout the generations. They don't know that detail just yet!

This is a wonderful prologue, very faithful to the original mermaid stories in which they are beautiful as well as dangerous.
