Description
Brand new adventure in the I HERO series from the 2Steves, featuring a revised interactive structure in which the reader never dies! Perfect for a slightly younger age range, and for sensitive older readers. YOU are a princess of the mer-folk. Reports come to your father, the sea-king, of ships and drowned men falling upon your lands. You discover that another undersea people, the tritons, have given a bloodthirsty crew of pirates the ability to survive underwater so that they can make sneak attacks on surface vessels and disappear below the waves to thwart any pursuit. What's more, the tritons have now formed an alliance with the pirates in order to invade your kingdom. While your people desperately hold back the invaders, you must evade the triton cavalry and their hunting creatures, selkies and merlions, and escape the terrible sirens in order to carry a message to Tethys, Lady of the Sea, asking her for aid. When you are captured by the pirates, you must face your most deadly foes and escape their clutches to complete your task. In this adventure, if you fail, you must blow your conch-shell to return to the safety of Coral City, home of your people, and begin your adventure again.

Author description
Steve Barlow was born in Britain (in Crewe, in the county of Cheshire). He went to Brierley Street School, which was like Bash Street only not as sophisticated, then to Crewe County Grammar School for Boys (and what kind of school feels the need, in its name, to remind its pupils what gender they are? Hmmm?). He went on to study at Warwick University and Nottingham University, and worked at various times as a teacher, actor, stage manager and puppeteer. Then he went to teach in Botswana, where a valid excuse for students not handing in their homework was \'A goat ate it, sir!\'. On his return to the UK he met Steve Skidmore, and the rest is hysteria. Steve Skidmore is shorter than Steve Barlow and less hairy. He was born in Birstall near Leicester in England. After managing to pass some exams at school, he went on to Nottingham University to supposedly read English, but spent most of his time playing sport and doing a variety of summer jobs including counting pastry pie lids (yes, really). He trained as a teacher of Drama, English and Film studies, before teaming up with Steve Barlow to become a full time author. He lives in Leicester and is a great rugby fan (he supports Leicester Tigers - \'Come on you Tiiiiigeeeers!\').
