The third fin-tastic tale about the feisty half-mermaid introduces a mysterious boy who shares her fate.
About Emily Windsnap and the Castle in the Mist
“An easy sell to girls looking for a friendship story with more than a touch of make-believe.” — Kirkus Reviews When Emily Windsnap discovers an old diamond ring during a class hunt for trinkets, how is she supposed to know that the ring is half the key to unlocking an ancient curse by Neptune himself? Now, with the ring stuck firmly on her hand, Emily finds herself under a new curse: in just a few days, she’ll cease to be half-human and half-mermaid and must say good-bye to one parent forever. Can she possibly find the other missing ring that will break all the curses? Is there anyone who can help her — before it’s too late?
