The worlds oceans are in peril.
Microscopic planktonia numbers are dwindling, and with their demise other species will die out, along with those the asperini depend on.
Many asperini shawls believe the only way to secure their survival is to abandon the ocean entirely and live on land alongside the nghozas. The only way to achieve this is to become nghozas themselves, but with the desertion of the magic wielding Muird, there is no other option but to mate with them.
Morg of Finyarn is born of a long line of ligphur who believe in the transition from asperini to nghoza and have been mating with them for many generations. Morg's young one will be the start of many who can change their tails to legs. Morg is repulsed by the notion and wants nothing to do with any such mating.
With help, she escapes and is shown the way to the White Queen, the only ligphur who may know the way to aid asperini everywhere. The White Queen is gifted and can see into the great ahead and may be their only hope in staying within the ocean.
Unbeknown to Morg, the White Queen is not who she's been told she is. She has a task of her own, and will do anything to gain control of Ealor, the one poren who really will make a difference. To do this she needs the youngling who will become Ealor's mate and own his heart. She knows who this youngling will be, she has seen it. Morg's offspring.

About the Author
Charles F Bond is a fantasy and paranormal writer. Basildon born he now lives near the east coast of England, in Suffolk, where he regularly sits down to write in whatever world he is engrossed in at the time. He's always been a writer, though he hasn't always known it. In his youthful days, his siblings would often have to shake him to gain his attention, for he has always been a daydreamer, and would often disappear into some dark and mysterious story within his own mind. "The move to Scotland helped," he chortles, "We moved to a farm, where I had a hundred acres to roam and get back to dreaming." In his teens he often wrote letters to his friends and family. To his friends he used to offer advice, family was just to stay in touch. He always felt more relaxed writing his thoughts of encouragement, than actually talking to people about their troubles. It wasn't until his mid-twenties, did he finally realise his potential for fiction. "Well the stories hadn't eased and I had to put them somewhere." Many rejections and five books later, he's currently working short stories, but longs to get back to his Evania series and its first book, Keeper Of The Realms.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
"The White Queen" gives a different twist on the world of the mer people. Their people are soon to become extinct, or have the leaders been telling lies? Morg must discover the truth. What she discovers is that she is crucial to to plan to save the mer people, but it involves mating with the dreaded humans. The writing is good, with a few grammatical errors, and the plot is interesting and provides plenty of action. What I didn't like was the use of the mer people words. Although there was a glossary at the end, it is distracting to have to flip back and look up each new word unique to this world. And that's rather difficult when reading an ebook. The author would have been better off adding enough descriptions so readers could visualize what these words meant. In addition, that would have helped in creating a better image of the world these people lived in.
