For her mother and sister it’s only supposed to be an episodic stay, because
their intention is to return to the capital, Adaria, held by both aristocrats,
by then, to be their home. Brinn, however, isn’t interested in living in the
golden cage of high society and aspires to a different existence, that will
push her to oppose the decisions of her family and to pursue a destiny
according to her own wishes.
The accidental discovery of what looks like a map to hidden treasure, buried in
Nyar Kaad, according to tradition, by pirates once dwelling in the settlement,
will push her to search for the hidden riches- an undertaking that the
protagonist will face courageously, at the cost of challenging her fears, the
rigid social conventions, and more literal dangers to her person, venturing on
a journey into the local legends and the past of her own family, until reaching
an unexpected epilogue.
Set to Isara, a fantasy world inspired by the period between the seventeenth
and the first decades of the nineteenth centuries, “The Mermaid and the
treasure of the Bay” is a journey full of mystery in the universe where
real and supernatural coexist intersecting in a subtle and insidious way, a
world divided between palaces and largely unexplored expanses, an opulent
capital and boundless oceans.
