The New York Times best-selling series continues with the half-mermaid embarking on an icy and perilous journey to the Land of the Midnight Sun.

Strange storms are blowing up from the ocean, caused by the nightmares of Neptune, King of the Sea. Convinced that his dreams herald an approaching threat, Neptune enlists half-mermaids Emily Windsnap and Aaron for a top-secret mission to find and eliminate the source of the trouble. But Emily and Aaron quickly get in over their heads in the frigid waters of the frozen north. Deep within an alpine lake where magical reflections show what could be rather than what is, the two discover a trove of stolen memories and Neptune’s darkest secret. Double-crosses and double-takes abound in Liz Kessler’s fifth magical mermaid adventure.

        Emily, Aaron, and Shona go to the land of the midnight sun to discover who took away Neptune's memories. They find another merman trapped in ice that looked like Neptune himself! The friends discover a magical narwhal and a battle of conflict between Neptune and his twin brother, Njord. I totally recommend this book! ( after you have read the other books before it! )

          King of the sea Neptune is having terrible dreams that are causing terrible and dangerous storms in the oceans. Half-mermaids Emily and Aaron are sent on a top-secret mission to the land of the midnight sun to find exactly what is causing king Neptune nightmares. Emily and Aaron discover a more dangerous mission the they thought. Along with a dark secret. Recommended for 10+ very good book! Thanks for reading Ajg16's reviews

            This book is so awesome, and it's all about a certain Emily Windsnap and her very special friend Aaron. Neptune, King of the Sea, is having nightmares about certain things that are causing dangerous storms, so he sends Emily and Aaron to the Land of the Midnight Sun to fix it. But they must overcome many challenges along the way!

                      I read the first 2 books and loved them. From the begging, i loved the book. I'm learning a lot about neptune and his wife. I would suggest this book for ages 8-12.
