Traveling home by cruise ship should be a relaxing break after Emily’s latest adventure, but things take a turn when the ship is overtaken by a pirate king and his crew. After the pirates collect everyone’s riches, they steal something even more valuable: Aaron. The pirate king’s eldest son takes Aaron captive, forcing him to help guide the pirates to the mythical Trident’s Treasure. So Emily dives into action and joins the younger son’s crew in hopes of saving Aaron. But while experiencing life on the waves, Emily is surprised to find herself not only enjoying the pirate life, but actually bonding with the crew — especially Sam, the pirate king’s son. Between helping Sam unravel riddles to beat his brother to the treasure and making sure that her friends are safe, Emily realizes that she needs to be true to herself. Will she cast aside her mermaid life to join her new friends, or will she find a way to follow her own path?
While on vacation, Emily Windsnap finds herself swept up in an ancient prophecy as the New York Times best-selling series continues.
Emily is headed to a tropical island for a relaxing vacation with friends and family. And this time, Emily promises her best friend, Shona, there will be absolutely no adventure — just plenty of fun. But somehow excitement always seems to find Emily, and before she knows it, she ends up on the other side of a powerful waterfall on a forgotten island no one else can get to. Well, no one that isn’t a half-mer like Emily and her boyfriend, Aaron. The people who live on the island believe in a prophecy that foretells how they can be saved from an imminent, devastating earthquake — and this prophecy seems to revolve around Emily and Aaron, as well as a mysterious, mythic giant. Will they be able to find the giant — and fulfill the prophecy — before it’s too late?

Double-crosses and double-takes abound in Liz Kessler’s fifth magical mermaid adventure.
The fourth audiobook in the best-selling series about half-mermaid, half-girl Emily Windsnap!
Emily Windsnap’s life on Allpoints Island seems perfect—her family is all together again, and she has both her best friend, Shona, and her new friend Aaron with her there. Somehow, though, it still feels like something—or somewhere—is missing. So when Neptune gives the Windsnaps a mission that sends them all back to Brightport, their hometown, what could be better?
But as construction in Brightport threatens to destroy the nearby mer-town of Shiprock, Neptune’s desire to have humans and mermaids come together seems impossible. Between trying to help humans and merfolk get along, sorting out her growing feelings toward Aaron, ﬁnding some missing sirens with Shona, and dealing with her old enemies Mandy and Mr. Beeston, Emily certainly has her ﬁns full!
Everybody has a secret. Mine’s a little different, though. I didn’t even know about it until the first day of swim class in seventh grade. You see, I’d never been allowed to go in the water before. As it turns out, swimming comes naturally to me. Very naturally. In fact, so naturally that you might even say . . . well, it’s true.
Here’s my secret: I figured out that I’m a mermaid.
All I wanted was to impress my best friend, Shona, and the other mermaids who live in the sea around Allpoints Island. But what did I do instead? I woke up the kraken, a terrifying octopus-like monster the size of an apartment building. Now he’s coming after everything and everyone I love. And who can stop him? You guessed it. Me. Well, me and Shona, and another person too–someone I’d hoped never, ever to see again.
For as long as she can remember, twelve-year-old Emily Windsnap has lived on a boat. And, oddly enough, for just as long as her mother has seemed anxious to keep Emily away from the water. But when Mom finally agrees to let her take swimming lessons, Emily makes a startling discovery–about her own identity, the mysterious father she’s never met, and the thrilling possibilities and perils shimmering deep below the water’s surface. With a sure sense of suspense and richly imaginative details, first-time author Liz Kessler lures us into a glorious world where mermaids study shipwrecks at school and Neptune rules with an iron trident–an enchanting fantasy about family secrets, loyal friendship, and the convention-defying power of love.
