Water Rites by J.R. Pearse Nelson
Vardon knows why Lorelei dreams of the sea. But how do you tell the girl you like she’s not human?
Water Rites is the first book in a modern-day fantasy trilogy, where there’s more to sea storms and the ocean’s depths than we mere human mortals understand. Where the legends live on, some of them hiding in plain sight, in your town and mine.
Between school, swim team, gossipy friends, and cleaning cages at her dad’s veterinary clinic, Lorelei doesn’t have time to worry too much about the odd dreams that haunt her sleep most nights. She considers herself about as normal as a girl can be, in her circumstances. Her mom left when she was six, but Dad did his best to make up for it with small-town stability.
Her biggest worries are AP Calculus tests and whether her team will make the state swimming championships. Oh, and the boy who offered study help, with a certain expression in his eyes that said it wasn’t about studying at all.
Life is good.
Until she finds out what she is.
That revelation is thanks to the boy with the hungry eyes. The only one she can trust now.
And then there’s the stranger, the shadow who seems to be everywhere Lorelei is. Even in her mind and dreams.
Her identity turned upside down, Lorelei must find the will and the way to understand herself, and her world, once again. But the surprises show no sign of slowing yet…
