An adventurous merman and kind fisherman find love and each other in this gorgeous update to the Little Mermaid story.

Winner of the Polari Prize, the UK's first and largest LGBTQ+ book award.

Far out at sea and deep below whispering waves lives a merman searching for a partner.

In the forbidden world above, a kind fisherman wonders if something more is waiting for him beyond the horizon.

When they find each other under a star-filled sky, their love will change both of their worlds.

Celebrate queer joy and the uniting power of love with this award-winning, inclusive retelling of a classic fairy tale.
