Kira’s adventures continue with she tries to find her true home.
Kira has discovered that she’s not human, but merrow-a mermaid-and that her biological parents are prisoners on an island run by the hateful finfolk. At thirteen years old, she’s not old enough to leave her sleepy seaside town to go on a solo underwater rescue mission…but when a group of selkies offer to lead her to the mysterious island Hildaland, she can’t refuse. No sooner does she find the island than she is taken prisoner herself. The only way she can save herself and her biological parents is to rely on her quick mind, her dolphin friend, Cass, and good luck. But will those be enough to save the prisoners of Hildaland?
Orysia Dawydiak was the first child born to immigrant parents who settled in Northern Ontario. She grew up with a foot in both worlds, on a diet rich in Ukrainian traditions and stories. She lives on a small farm on Prince Edward Island where she raises sheep and dogs. She writes books on livestock protection dogs, and has also written award-winning fiction for children and young adults. The first Kira book, Kira’s Secret, has been shortlisted for the Hackmatack Children’s Choice Award.
