From the back cover:
In the fantastical land of Kiwaft, a world with sylphs and sprites, extraordinary powers and gifts, and lurking adventures, Silvyn is a young merman of Coralae who loves his life. For a bit of fun, a few of his Coralaen friends kidnap a land-dweller woman named Graiceyl, and she turns Silvyn's life upside down.
Attraction to the unknown sparks within Silvyn, and danger soon threatens, for land-dwellers and ocean-dwellers are on the brink of war. As the forbidden relationship between him and Graiceyl grows, it could be the catalyst that unites their peoples or rips them apart.
In spite of our love of comfort and familiarity, we all long to be a part of something greater, for our lives to have ultimate purpose, to find a meaning for our existence. In Silvyn's Tale, follow one merman as he discovers his life is more important than he could ever have dreamed and his choices have far-reaching consequences he never could foresee and he is loved with a love he never could have fathomed.
