The Last Heir

Almost every culture has a mythical creature that is half human – half fish. They have been called Syreni, Undine, even Mermaid; but they call themselves Daonkal. The Last Heir is a unique blend of global legends, science and myth with a modern twist that sparks the imagination and takes the reader deep into warring realms far below the ocean’s surface. A sect of Daonkal, the Kargassa, seeks to take dominion over the Earth returning our world to its aquatic origin. The Baiji are the sworn alliance to stop the Kargassa and have long awaited the signal of the Xilas, the last heir. The key to ending the war lies with the Xilas, who has been kept far from the sea and from the truth that he is the promised royal hero who, because of his lineage, possesses the ability to take human or Daonkal form.

MermanEighteen-year-old Branon Donovan vaguely remembers his parents except for a few bizarre encounters at an aquarium, and brief memories of a pop-up book about the ocean.

Through new allies and unforeseen foes, Branon discovers his true identity and finds the inner strength to fulfill his destiny: save the world he knows and one he never knew existed.
