Hated by the people around him, sixteen-year-old Mercaj expects everything to change for the better with the arrival of his predestined soulmate. After she fails to show up, he's forced into exile where he discovers long-forgotten powers over the sea, which despite his efforts to find a place of his own, might just destroy the whole world.
Alex F. Fayle grew up fascinated by fairy tales and even convinced himself for a while as a teenager that he might be a changeling. He's almost certain that he sees the "wee folk" everywhere about him, but he knows better than to mess with them unless he has to. Instead he writes about them, which he hopes they see as a form of compliment and not an invitation to meddle. He can be found online at AlexWorld at http://www.alex-f-fayle.com
