Returning Eden

by: Maria Mellins

A gothic ocean mystery.

In a world of monsters, sharks, castles and corpses it is up to Eden to keep the ocean’s beasts at bay.

Eden Hollow is being hunted. A dark secret from her past has followed her to the remote island of Cantillon, where she is due to start college.

Before long, a corpse dressed as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, is found floating in the ocean. Together with her friends Niamh, Amira, Riley and the handsome but mysterious Dylan, Eden must confront her dark past in order to find the predator. In doing so, the teenagers stumble into a sinister world that stretches the realms of reality, as they discover just what is causing the uncanny ripples on the ocean’s surface.

A grotesquely beautiful tale of love, friendship and transformation.
