In Travelers, uncover a world where mermaids aren't myth, the city of Atlantis exists, and time travel is possible.
Discover how Triana, a twenty-year-old mermaid, is thrust into time travel throughout human history to save her world from destruction.
Forced to share the body of a human in the era she travels to, Triana realizes that Alexio, a merman from her world, is following her. Unable to return to her own body, and unsure if she can trust Alexio, Triana is faced with insurmountable challenges. Will she be able to save her world in time? Will she ever be able to return to her own body?
The book was easy to read, and it's amazing how Triana's time travel destinations were based on history or literary references. I'm looking forward to the sequel, Settlers, because the ending left many questions unanswered.

I just finished reading Travelers by Carla Reighard. You definitely don't have to be a kid to enjoy this story about time traveling mermaids. It is a great love story with a strong female lead who puts her people above all else...even at times her heart. Without giving too much away I would like to say that nowhere else have I read a book that combines, time traveling magic wielding merpeople from another world. It was done in a well put together way that even delves into some of our favorite characters from history. I'll leave you with this...if you like Gilmore girls - and come on, who doesn't? - you need to check out this book. I can't wait to read what happens in the next installment of the Travelers Duology and see where Triana's story and heart take her next.
Travelers is a fun and quick read about a mermaid traveling through time and essentially body hopping in order to save her people. I loved the world building and characters in Travelers and look forward to reading the sequel, however, there were a few things that were left open-ended in order for there to be a sequel.
Travelers follows the story of a mermaid named Triana as she travels through time to save her people. The gem of the story, in my opinion, are the subtle nods to pop culture! Every time she encountered a character from a book, movie or tv show that I was familiar with I found myself smiling.
Complicated fantasy tale about a race of mermaids and mermen from the planet Kyra. The merpeople were sent to live in earth's oceans by Poseidon, the king of Kyra until the evil that threatened them was destroyed. The Stones of Power were the key that protected them, their leader and the way back to their planet. Triana, the protagonist, and Esmerilla, the antagonist matched wits and power as Esmerilla tried to gain all the stones and power for herself. Secrets are held close and slowly revealed as the plot expands. The ending is left open by the author to allow a second tale to be delivered in the future.
