About the publication

The magic ring that Emily Windsnap - half mermaid, half ordinary girl - finds buried in the sand belongs to Neptune, and he wants it back. But the ring, once on, won't come off, and Neptune sends Emily's boat spinning away across the sea. When it comes to rest, she and her best friend, Shona, can see a mysterious castle shimmering in the mist on the horizon.

Another magical adventure full of fun and friendship!

Reviews

Light-hearted and exciting, with a straight-forward plot and happy conclusion... the book's strength lies in the rich, descriptive passages, unusual in a story for this age group, which conjure a vast watery world governed by violent forces and inhabited by shadowy creatures.
