Let the hunt begin …
After witnessing the murder of his mother by a mermaid, Prince Eryx Bloodhurst of Atlas makes a deal to sedate his need for vengeance: they’ll catch the mermaid who did the deed, but he’ll pay for it with his crown.
Arelle, third princess of the Blu Sea, has never known the true cruelty of the forbidden lands firsthand, but she will soon. The halfling prince with murder in his eyes and the sea’s songs in his blood will make sure of that.
He should kill her. Perhaps, keeping her might be worse.
Two kingdoms are falling. One king is losing it all and another threatens to ruin everything. The rules of the land and sea are changing. Secrets of the past are spilling.
And all because of a prince and his little mermaid—whether they live or die—nothing in the realm will ever be the same.
In The Hunted, Bethany-Kris opens a new world—the 9INE REALMS—for readers with a dark fairy tale retelling, and pulls inspiration from the cult classic favorite and the Hans Christian Andersen original to redefine what it means to be The Little Mermaid.


Be captivated by a plot that takes you to the bottom of the ocean and shows you the beauties - and hardships - of a mythological being...

Arelle, Poe and Coral, three united sisters. But beyond all sisterhood, they are mermaids, daughters of one of the kings. But do not think that their lives are made easier by this noble position.
There are strict rules in the realm, and they must set an example, and were closely watched by the Mermen, the King's guards.

In another realm, Eryx, the King's only surviving son, turns 20, and sees his life changed... for the worse.

When two kingdoms meet - and captivate - despite the ban, despite the struggle - secrets come out and a war can be unleashed.

A dark story for fantasy lovers.
