Marisa Noelle: Fight For Freedom

Today I am taking part in the blog tour for Fight For Freedom. I’m sharing an extract from the book with thanks to Zoe O’Farrell for inviting me on the tour and to Marisa Noelle for providing the extract.


Cordelia, Wade, and friends return to the mainland to find a nuclear junkyard. With the human population drastically reduced, most blame the mermaids and selachii for deserting them and hiding the sanctuary of Atlantis.
When a new prophecy says they must unite with a third, a human, Wade and Cordelia open their land to the survivors. But sharing Atlantis comes with a price. Prejudices are rife and many are out for revenge. And the third in their trio is anything but cooperative.
Distracted by the politics on the island, Cordelia misses the creeping return of Wade’s old flame, Stephanie. Seeking vengeance, Stephanie transforms into a sea witch and evokes the hound of the ocean, a terrible beast from the ancient depths that kills without prejudice.
With Atlantis threatened, Cordelia’s powers misfiring, and a betrayer among their ranks, mermaids and selachii are once again at risk of extinction. Only if they can remain united with the humans and vanquish the hound and Stephanie will they have a chance to reclaim their island.
Perfect for fans of the Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi, Twilight by Stephanie Meyer, The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo, Crush by Tracy Wolff, Mermaid’s Return by A.L. Knorr.


The smile slipped from her lips, and it wasn’t until that moment I noticed it wasn’t a real smile to begin with. She inspected our plateful of food, finally seemed to notice the state of our dress, and had the decency to blush.

“It’s this.” She pointed to a book in her lap.

How had I not noticed she was clutching The Mermaid Chronicles? It barely left her side. She held it tightly, clenching it in white fingers, and said nothing more.  

I found myself mesmerized by the glistening blueness of it. Although faded with age and battered by events, there was a faint, blue hue to the cover of the book that shimmered when it moved. We still hadn’t found an explanation for the symbol beneath the picture of the mermaid on the cover, and Maya was coming to the conclusion it was just for decoration.

The three of us stared at the plate of now unwanted food, unwilling to commit thoughts to words. What could be so important the day after our wedding? Nothing good.  

I closed my eyes. Wade held my hand. Time ticked silently on.

“So what’s changed now?” Wade asked.

A second ominous silence wound between us. A breeze drifted through the windows and irritated the back of my neck. The scent of honeysuckle in the air sickened me.

“We got married,” I answered my husband.

I didn’t need confirmation from Maya, her crestfallen face said it all.

Wade launched to his feet and jabbed a finger at the ceiling. “Us getting married was a good thing.”  

“I can’t help what appears in the pages,” Maya said. “I can only tell you what is says. And now, it seems, there will be another adventure. We must be united once again.”
