Overview

The New York Times best-selling series continues with the half-mermaid embarking on an icy and perilous journey to the Land of the Midnight Sun.

Strange storms are blowing up from the ocean, caused by the nightmares of Neptune, King of the Sea. Convinced that his dreams herald an approaching threat, Neptune enlists half-mermaids Emily Windsnap and Aaron for a top-secret mission to find and eliminate the source of the trouble. But Emily and Aaron quickly get in over their heads in the frigid waters of the frozen north. Deep within an alpine lake where magical reflections show what could be rather than what is, the two discover a trove of stolen memories and Neptune’s darkest secret. Double-crosses and double-takes abound in Liz Kessler’s fifth magical mermaid adventure.

Editorial Reviews

On their latest secret mission, half-mermaids Emily Windsnap and Aaron are off to the Arctic to find the source of the storms that are jolting Neptune awake with nightmares. What begins as a simple fact-finding assignment, however, becomes a sea of troubles in these frigid northern waters. With their evocative illustrations by Natacha Ledwidge, Liz Kessler's fifth Emily Windsnap young reader novel has a magical aura that never seem to compromise its suspense.

Children's Literature - Tiffany Torbeck
In this new adventure, Emily is sent to Alaska to solve a mystery for King Neptune. He has been plagued by nightmares, which have greatly affected the weather in Florida. Instead of sending one of his own staff he sends Emily and her boyfriend, Aaron, since they are both half mermaid, half human. The two take off for Alaska, accompanied by some questionable chaperones, and head to the mountains to solve Neptune's problem. While there, they discover a hidden mermaid world, as well as the source of Neptune's nightmares, but there is more to this frozen society than meets the eye and soon Emily is questioning who she can trust. This is the fifth book in the series, and although it is helpful to read the preceding stories it is not necessary. Any action that occurred in previous books is recapped for the reader and the plot does not hinge on other books. The "Emily Windsnap" books are gentle adventures for young readers and will circulate well at busy libraries. Reviewer: Tiffany Torbeck
Kirkus Reviews
Can half-mermaid Emily rely upon her friends to help her find the source of Neptune's nightmares? Will they be able to unravel the mystery of his memories before an evil threat takes over the waters? Kessler's fifth installment in this popular series continues with a successful mix of fantasy, mystery, adventure and a touch of romance. Emily and boyfriend Aaron are summoned by Neptune to embark on a quest that is "extremely important, extremely secret…and extremely dangerous." With only snippets of dreams as clues, they set off north to the Arctic in search of a lake surrounded by mountains and a glacier--"a place filled with secrets and magic…and fear." Soon they encounter underwater bubbles filled with memories, discover a frozen yet thawing twin brother of Neptune, meet a wise narwhal and confront their leader with the truth. The dialogue is quick and the action even quicker as the plot twists and turns in unexpected ways. Questions of trust dominate, as many characters are faced with difficult decisions. Can Millie trust the love of her life even though he has been acting oddly? Can Emily count on her best friend, whom she has neglected, to keep a secret? Can Neptune believe his brother Njord truly wants to reunite and rule the oceans together? The unexpected ending will surely satisfy as a fitting close to this light page turner. Past fans of the series should especially enjoy diving in. (Fantasy. 9-12)
