'They gave you the box, they gave me the key.
The merfolk exist, and they want us to find them.'

New friends Finn and Sage discover an incredible secret: real merfolk live under the wild waves off the Scottish coast. The sea-people are brave, proud, powerful -- and in grave danger.

Can Finn and Sage help defeat a terrifying enemy before the last of the merfolk are lost forever?


'The author has a talent for describing magical creatures with a realism that renders them integral to the Scottish landscape... Secrets of the Last Merfolk is exciting and action packed, and one of our favourite reads of the year.'

'Another fantastic fast-paced middle grade novel... Lindsay Littleson delves right into the heart of loyalty between two friends determined to succeed and her writing draws you in as you join Sage and Finn on what can only be described as an epic journey. With a superb nod to climate change, carbon footprints and the pros and cons to industrial planning also on the agenda, this thought-provoking tale of humans and merfolk reveals how their co-existence can make the world a better place.'
