About the Author
 I live in England, in a quaint little village that time doesn't seem to have touched. No, wait a minute- that's the retirement biography. Right now I am in England in a medium sized town that no one has ever heard of, so I won't bore you with the details. Keeping me company are numerous sexy men. I just wish that they weren't all inside my head.

Can a merman and an Atlantean, separated by centuries and prejudices, find love together?

Merman Delwyn is an Oracle of the past. He loves nothing better than observing the comings and goings of those who lived centuries before he was born. His favourite time period to visit is the days when both Atlantean and mer inhabited the sunken city of Atlantis, and his guilty pleasure is watching lovers come together in passion. Secure in the knowledge that no one can see him when he’s viewing the past, nothing can prepare Delwyn for the moment Fabian, an Atlantean living in the past, speaks to him.

Fabian is a man with divided loyalties. The demi-god son of the Goddess of Sea Creatures has sworn to serve the Goddess of Prophecy as her Oracle of the present. His unique status gives him the power to see anything in the present, including the mysterious merman voyeur from the distant future.

Despite the centuries that separate them, Delwyn and Fabian find they have a lot in common and quickly form a friendship that both hope one day will become something more. But before they can be together in the present, Delwyn and Fabian must unravel the mysteries of the past.

Only time will tell if the truth about the long-since vanished Atlanteans will bring them together or tear them apart, as the battle for the sunken city of Atlantis begins.

Something missing from not reading the other books!
(Updated: April 27, 2017)

Susan Mac Nicol On behalf of Debbie Attenborough who is having a little trouble uploading her review. So I offered to do it for, I have NOT read this book.

Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book. 

This is book FOUR in the Mermen and Magic series. I have not read the other three. And I think maybe I should have, because I felt I was missing something. Something about the Gods and Goddesses waking that wasn't re-capped here. That's just my opinion, and I can only give my opinion, but I really think it would have helped ME.

Delwyn is a merman, and Oracle of the Past. He cannot see unless he is in a vision. what he enjoys the most is almost spying on lovers of old. Centuries ago, Fabian was Oracle of the Present. When Fabian catches Delwyn watching him and his lover, Delywn is shocked, but intrigued by the Altantean. They begin to spend more and more time together, til one day, they can be together for real. 

Mer-people books come through so rarely, and I had high hopes for this one, but that missing SOMETHING from not reading the other three books left me feeling a bit let down. 

Oh don't get me wrong, its still a really good book, and I did enjoy it, for the most part. I just . . . .ugh! I can't word it right, without making the book look bad, because it really ISN'T a bad book, not at all. I just needed that from the other books that isn't here, that's all! 

It's told from both Delwyn and Fabian's point of view, in the third person. I spotted no spelling or editing errors. And I really DID like it, I just didn't love it. 

Given time (she says, falling off her chair laughing!) I'll go back and read the other three books and come back to this one again. I just don't know when that's likely to happen. 

I can't see that I've read anything else by Brown, but I would like to read more. 

because of that SOMETHING missing from the other three books...
