Underneath - A Merfolk Tale by M.N. Arzu

Underneath - A Merfolk Tale (The Under Series Book 1) by [Arzu, M.N.]
"A hidden gem. Truly exceptional!"
- Lincoln Cole, author of the bestselling novel Raven's Peak
"I've never read anything like it!"
- Sean Seebach, author of Autumn Dark

An injured merman is found washed up on a beach in Maine. After being brought to a special facility, doctors are at a loss for how to help him. Worse, how are they to keep him away from the eager hands of the military?
One reporter is hot on the trail of what she believes is an elaborate hoax—or the story of a lifetime. A story that has her tracking elusive clues into an ever-growing house of secrets surrounding one of the richest families in New York City.
For merfolk have been hiding in plain sight for centuries, and are now torn between sacrificing one of their own—or telling humanity the truth.

Underneath is a story about finding one's place in the world. How far would you go to protect the people you love most?
Review: This isn't your typical mermaid story, and that fact alone had me captivated from page one. Underneath is a unique read, written by a talented author who captures character well. Everyone felt realistic and interesting, not one dimensional at all... the only problem is now I have to wait for book 2!
