Introduction to the Second Edition
Welcome to the 2nd edition of The Girl who Sang with Whales. This new edition, published in October 2016, contains substantial changes from the first edition, most notably, a completely re-written and improved ending – thank you to those who requested it! Thus, the previous cliff-hanger ending has been eliminated.
Here be Sea-Dragons and salty adventure … be warned, wayfarer. Sail these waters at your peril.
I sang to the Sea; She sang back to me,
Tales and travails wreathed in mystery.
Imagine an island world where the seas seethe with dangerous creatures, where those rare men and women called Bard-Navigators have learned to sing Whales to protect their ships. Only on the wings of Bardsong can ships avoid the Sea-Dragons and travel the great gulf between the Atolls scattered across the World-Sea.
Zhialeiana has an astonishing gift of song. She can sing the unique songs of the mighty and magical creatures of the World-Sea. She can touch their souls. When her gift is discovered at her mother’s funeral, the current of her life begins to sweep her to a future that she could never have imagined. She must navigate both opportunity and danger, and lay her life on the line for the Whales she loves. But Zhialeiana also has a toxic secret – a secret that will force her to undertake a journey beyond faith, beyond all hope, and beyond the World-Sea.
Prepare to be swept away to a magnificent ocean world where danger can, and does, lurk beneath any wave.
The Islesong series is set in the same world as my bestselling Shapeshifter Dragons series – Aranya, the Pygmy Dragon and Dragonfriend. What deep Dragon secrets underpin the enmity between the Sea-Dragons and the mighty Whales of this maritime world? You will need to dive deep, dear reader! Dive deep, and discover the astonishing secrets and musical magic of the Island-World with Zhialeiana, the Girl who Sang with Whales.

A beautiful and engaging story about realizing what is important in life and following your heart.
Rae Maddox’s mom, Gina, thinks nothing of packing up and moving. New apartment, new town, new job–all of it is an adventure to Gina, but for Rae, each move is just one more friend lost, one more chance to feel like an outsider. When they arrive in Wisconsin, Gina promises to stay put until graduation. Cautiously optimistic, Rae wades into the social whirl at Whitman High School, making a few friends and even earning a chance at love.
But when the vice principal pairs her with a new student, Allison Daly, things go bad in a big way. It seems Allison was orphaned after her parents died in a suspicious house fire, leaving their daughter to bounce between relatives’ homes. When a sleepover at Rae’s house goes terribly wrong, Rae sees a troubling side of Allison–and learns a few secrets about her own mother in the process. Suddenly Rae is at risk of losing everything and everyone she cares about–unless she steps up and takes charge of her life once and for all.
