The Mermaid of the Month for October is Adante! She is the antagonist to our heroine, Ilauria, which makes her one of my absolute favorite mermaids to write. Being a member of the Venvian Psyne, as well as part of the Venvian leader’s entourage, Adante is the bad girl of the group. It’s fitting that Adante’s month is also the month Halloween falls upon. She is edgy, outspoken, and doesn’t back down to confrontation. Due to her close position to the Venvian leader, she is privy to confidential knowledge that most Psyne are shielded from and Adante relishes in giving Ilauria an education she won’t soon forget. With her long, straight black hair and sapphire blue eyes, she’s not only striking but is a force to be reckoned with. In Luminous, Adante begins the rescue mission with a few preconceived notions regarding humans but as the story progresses, these ideas are suddenly thrown into question and she is left having to cope with the effect they have on how she views her entire life, not to mention her status as one of the Venvian. Her character arc is not only dynamic but is revealing as well. This stunning Psyne will also be gracing the cover of the second book in the Psyne series entitled, Prism, which will be released next spring. Look for more on the mermaid, Adante, throughout the month!
