Don’t miss this event which brings together a few of our favourite things: Norse myths, fairytales retold, Young Adult books and cake. We’re absolutely thrilled to be hosting the UK launch of Julia Ember’s second novel for teens, The Seafarer’s Kiss. It promises to be a fun-filled evening!

What to expect

As well as reading from her latest book, Julia will be taking questions and talking about her novel in a discussion chaired by fellow YA author Laura Lam. To finish off, we’ll be enjoying some bookish games – and of course, there’ll be some mermaid-themed cakes and snacks to nibble on along the way.

About the book

Having long wondered what lives beyond the ice shelf, nineteen-year-old mermaid Ersel learns of the life she wants when she rescues and befriends Ragna, a shield-maiden stranded on the merfolk’s glacier. But when Ersel’s childhood friend and suitor catches them together, he gives Ersel a choice: say goodbye to Ragna or face justice at the hands of the glacier’s brutal king. Determined to forge a different fate, Ersel seeks help from the divine Loki. But such deals are never straightforward, and the outcome sees her exiled from the only home and protection she’s known. To save herself from perishing in the barren, underwater wasteland and be reunited with the human she’s come to love, Ersel must try to outsmart the God of Lies.
