Marley Tanner is working her glamorous job when suddenly the god of all the sea dwellers makes her an offer she doesnít want to refuse.  She loves her current gig but to become a mermaid is a once in a lifetime opportunity! 

When she meets Xoc, the Spell Singer of Conclave, a local cove, she becomes more embroiled in daily merfolk life.  Marley soon learns that this is just the beginning of a new life and a longtime love.

There arenít enough good stories about mermaids, so of course, At the Far Waters of Forever is a very welcome sequel to Danish Vinegar. Fantasy and reality are gorgeously meshed together to forge a sense of cinematic timelessness.  This poignant tale sparkles like sunlight at sea, and I guarantee it will sweep you off your feet.  Passion and loyalty, family and friendship, sacrifice and reward are the main ingredients of the rather straightforward plot.  Marley and Xoc bring a special beauty and life to it all, just when you think youíve got the whole thing figured out.  The best thing about this story is that I didnít see what was waiting around the bend at the climax, which made it all that much more meaningful.
