Publisher's Summary

Mira is a mermaid on a mission.

It’s time to leave the ocean. Mira Belshaw has been at sea for...well, she doesn’t know how many years. It’s hard to keep track of time when you live in the ocean. But after enough time, the salt water triggers the desire to procreate, and her time is up.

Finding a mate is the most important thing to her right now, and to do that, she has to return to the place where she was last human - the coastal city of Saltford.

Equipped with everything she needs to lure her perfect mate and produce a strong siren child, all she needs is the opportunity to mingle with humans. But when she meets Nathan, the ONE, things start to go sideways....

The Mira's Return trilogy contains all three titles returning, falling, and surfacing and is a companion series to the elemental origins series, a teen fantasy adventure series by an award-winning author.

If you like Melissa Meyer, Leia Stone, Jaymin Eve, Cassandra Clare, Lauren Kate, Stephenie Meyer, Becca Fitzpatrick, or Michelle Madow, you will love A.L. Knorr’s storytelling.

Mermaid Mira

Mermaid, Mira Belshaw left for the sea at 14 after the death of her mother, when her alcoholic father began getting violent. The problem with mermaids is they aren't good with people and making conversation. Now it's time to come home and find a mate to procreate.

After meeting the only man that has ever loved her, they marry and have a daughter Targa and he passes away leaving Mira looking for an income to support both herself and her daughter.

Gabra Zackman does a fantastic job narrating this trilogy and the life as a single woman

Wow

Absolutely one of my favorites of all time. I LOVE mermaids so when I found this author, I was NOT disappointed!! She captures the mermaid very well in all of her water elemental books, and she has many! I would absolutely listen to these audio books a thousand times and never get bored of this series. I’ve read a lot of mermaid/siren books and a lot of them don’t have great storylines…this entire water elemental series is undeniably perfect.

Mira’s stories

This is a collection of three stories of Mira. It starts off with Mira leaving the sea after her first salt cycle looking for a mate. It is a sweet love story and we get to find out Mira’s history. The second book follows Nate and Mira as they start their wedded bliss and conceive of a child. The third story is about Targa’s young life and how Mira starts as a diver. I listened to the elemental series first before this series so it was fun to get the background on Targa’s young life and find out about Nate, Mira’s love. Great story. I’m ready for more.

Brilliant prequel

You could read this before or after the elementals with ease. I feel a greater bond with Mira now, knowing her life story. A.L. Knorr s a superb writer, fast paced, detailed and depicts love and plight well within a sci-fi genre. I read one of her books and am now steadily working my way through them all. They keep you wanting to know more and feeling deeply connected to the characters. Perfect for a large range of ages. Loved the bond Mira feels to her her daughter and I feel sympathetic towards it. Keep them coming please! More, more! Thank you

Fantastic Prequel

This book (or 3 combined into one boxed set) is Mira's story. Mira is Targa's mother - both are mermaids. We meet Targa and Mira in Born of Water from the main Elemental Origins series..

The first book covers Mira's return from the sea and she's ready to find a mate to have a child with - the only problem is, the man she falls in love with is already in a relationship with her best friend.

The second book covers Mira and Nate's courtship, wedding and honeymoon - Mira finds out on her honeymoon that mermaids are not meant to be up in the sky and the altitude makes her sick.

The third book is set 10 years later when Mira has been widowed and Targa is 10 - it also introduces Saxony and Georjie,

Altogether, the three books are really good and we get to find out more about what life was like for Mira before we get to Targa's story, and how she ended up working for the salvage diving company.

Gabra Zackman did another great job of narrating these books.

Amazing

I have read to all of the elementals. And this is great prequel. Gabra sounds exctaly as I imagined Mira sounded from reading the elementals. Abby is an amazing author.
