'In the far north, a mystery has lain hidden for centuries'

The Great Cataclysm is over and humanity is gradually getting back on its feet.

Army medic Daniel Manston has already been executed once for a crime he didn't commit, and now he's determined to stay alive. But to do so, he must solve a centuries-old riddle about the relationship between the sea people and humanity. On the remote arctic island of Svalbard, he finds an ally in Deryn, a female hermit whose task is to transcribe records of the ancient past. Together, they stumble upon a terrible truth that changes everything - and puts them both in mortal danger.

In a land of ghosts and strange creatures, what is real, and what is not? And can you tell the difference, when your life depends upon it?

Review quote

A compelling tale with a strong appeal to fans of adventure and fantasy; it is intelligently plotted and features a stunningly imagined and expertly executed world. Billy O'Shea's ability to conjure powerful imagery in the minds of readers and the cinematic storytelling craft set The Other Mermaid to be a page-turner.

- The Book Commentary

With a mix of sci-fi and fantasy as well as a splash of romance, O'Shea's genre-bending mystery captivates with compelling characters, polished prose, and subtle yet ever-present tension. [...]

With themes of love, family, and redemption, O'Shea's story is a satisfying read for those looking to escape into a future world where myth and folklore become reality.

- BookLife

Billy O'Shea has knocked it out of the park again. The Other Mermaid is a sheer delight.

- Amazon review (five stars)

Unique, imaginative, gripping and engaging. If you have to get up early in the morning don't start reading it the evening before.
