There had been whispers of a magical hidden alcove within the Fenix Forest of Ameral Alley for years, but according to legend, no one had ever found it.
Seventeen-year-old Halia Bodine, a girl with a medically baffling rare lung disease, begins dreaming of a map that leads her to the hidden alcove of Moa's Rock. In the depths of this magical alcove exists the vibrant underwater world of M'deia, with its hunter tribes, alluring creatures, ghastly beasts, and untouched lands. After a fated encounter with Luka, a M'deian boy in exile from his clan, Halia enters this mythical underwater world. Once there, she learns that her illness ceases to exist, that she loves without reciprocation, and the cold truth of her parents' death.
When her family heirloom — a timepiece cursed with the power to end all lives of the sea's inhabitants — is found in an ancient enemy's wicked hands, Halia soon discovers that this world is not without its own lurking dangers. First, her foe turns the tribes to stone. Next, he wants Halia dead.
When Halia comes face-to-face with her fears, will she finally have the chance to go back in time and save both the stone tribe and her parents from their unfortunate deaths, or will her enemy destroy her and all she holds dear before she can?
Find out in this wondrous tale of friendship, mystery, and sea-crossed romance.

A thousand YESSES! That ending was fantastic! All the possibilities. This was A JOURNEY! Everything the characters went through, I felt. The world was so fantastically written, the characters so 3 dimensional, the story so unique and INCREDIBLE! The only downside of finding a new author's debut novel is the fact that I can't go and bulk buy all of their other works! Now I have to wait :((((
Well written. Great concept. Incredible characters. Pembrim follows a young ill girl who is led to a beautiful underwater world of sea warriors and a new kind of magic, but stays very clearly away from becoming one of those fairytale mermaid novels, in fact it doesn't feel like that at all. This is almost its own new genre and a completely original story line... This is an epic fantasy adventure! I WANT MORE...
