Bitten Fantasy Book Cover Creation - Part Two
With just a bite and a merman's tear, a whole new life awaits Alana Cassidy if she wants it. Never as simple as it seems, she contends with the pain of leaving her foster siblings she's grown to love behind, or staying and living with the wrath and abuse of her soon to be legal parents. Adopted, just before her eighteenth birthday, Alana feels any hope she had of getting away from Martin & Jo Pernickle, slipping quickly into oblivion.
Her parents wouldn't have wanted this life for her, and with Jonas's help, she is starting to realize that in her grief, she'd forgotten how to live until now.
Whoever said transforming into a mermaid was easy, especially when the price attached is becoming King Triton's dead daughter, Zerrin? Bound in Jonas's essence -a secret between them all their own- the kingdom of Altonia awaits, and with it the surprise of a resurrected princess. Bitten and changed, Alana has a lot to learn. Looks can be deceiving, but acceptance is not so freely given.
Their fate is in the King's hands, and the consequences of breaking Altonian law could be the deciding factor.
**Bitten (a novella) is Part II of the young adult, fantasy fiction novel: Zerrin by Patria L. Dunn
