Born of Water

Born of Water

An Elemental Origins Novel by A.L. Knorr

Everything you thought you knew about mermaids is wrong.

Life for a high school kid in Saltford should be simple and straightforward – for 17-year-old Targa MacAuley, it’s anything but.

Navigating life with a supernatural mother is tricky enough, but dealing with the feelings of guilt that she’s never been able to ‘change’, and confusion that she doesn’t seem to be attracted to boys (or girls for that matter), Targa feels like she’s got more demons than the average kid.

When the opportunity to salvage a mysterious wreck in the Baltic arises for her mom, a professional salvage diver by day, Targa jumps at the chance to go abroad for the summer. But it’s when she meets Antoni, and a boating accident puts them both in danger, that Targa’s world turns inside out for good.

Bookdragon says: This was a fun addition to the series. We found the material to be a little more mature and sexy than the others, but still clean. It’s fine as a standalone read, but we can’t wait to see what happens eventually when all the girls bring together their elements.
