Editorial Reviews


I dreamt that I was floating across the ocean in a crystal sphere.The sound of the ocean grew louder, until it surrounded me, and I felt myself sinking deeper and deeper into it, until the surface was so far above me the light couldn't find me anymore. The waves pounding against the shore were in perfect sync with my heartbeat. I felt a chill and reached to pull my blanket up to cover me, but my fingers grasped at emptiness--it wasn't there. 

Nor was my bed.

I opened my eyes frantically and gasped--I was standing in my pajamas at the very edge of a cliff, the white, foamy waves crashed against the rocks hundreds of feet below me. A sudden wind pushed me off balance, and for a second I teetered dangerously over the edge. I leaned back quickly and stumbled away from the precipice. The blood rushed to my ears and my legs trembled. 

What the hell am I doing here?

I was halfway up the hill to Dunluce Castle, about fifty feet from the main road. I could see the silhouette of the castle off in the distance to my left, and the faint glow of lights from Portballintrae to the right, pulsing through a thin mist.

The full moon hovered in the starry sky, casting a wide, pearly gleam over glassy green water. A dark shadow I'm sure was a bat zipped past me with a leathery noise. As I surveyed the scene, a spot of white against the dark rocks below me caught my eye. I took a sharp breath. Impossibly,there was a boy down there, sitting on a small rock off the shore, looking up at me.

"I finished part one of Shearwater under a little less than 13 hours. I can't believe it either! It's just so good. The prologue in Shearwater drew me to the characters and into the story. There is enough mystery in this book to keep you keen but not make you confused. You do not need to worry about clichés, cause gurrrlll, this book exceeds my expectations. You have NO idea. I'm going to be bold here and say that this might be one of my favourite reads in 2016." -Unfathomable Reads ★★★★★

"Greatly captivating and wonderfully written!" -Megan W. ★★★★★

"Beautifully written and gripping. I'm thoroughly impressed." -Sandra Easter ★★★★★

"Shearwater takes Twilight to the sea, with a shape shifting merman battling forbidden love and a cult that seeks his blood for power." -Chris Maloney ★★★★★

"The heroine is sympathetic and yet realistic, the paranormal elements spooky, well-thought out and well-salted in. I liked the romance sub-plot because there are a number of potential love interests and it's impossible to know which one she'll end up with. That adds another level of intrigue to an already mysterious storyline. The whole thing has an otherworldly feel, yet is grounded in a very real high school environment." -Gina Grant

"Irish mythology was something refreshing and new to me, and it completely submerged me as we gradually learned more about it. When it comes to the concept of the mermaids, Murphy kept it unique. He gives them their own world, their own bodies and own features. It was all so well planned and done that it made me happy just reading about it." -Olivia Roach
