About Voiceless: A Mermaid’s Tale by Anna Finch:
Freedom is a choice. Is she brave enough to take it or will she remain voiceless?
Moriah is a beautiful mermaid princess that lives in Zoara-Bela under her grandfather, King Abaddon’s cruel reign. On her 16th birthday, she must undergo her rite of passage in which a young mermaid must transform into a human, and live among them for a day without drawing suspicion from the world above.
It’s not until she meets Michael, a young, handsome man, that she witnesses the stark contrast between the openness and kindness of the human world and the bitter reality of her draconian society.
She returns to the city beneath the waves with a longing for the freedom of the shore in her heart. But getting her freedom isn’t as simple as using magic to get a pair of legs.
Moriah must risk her life to free her kingdom and uncover the secrets of her past and family. If she wants her freedom and the chance to love freely, she must stand up to the wicked king who will stop at nothing to crush any voice of dissent.
Time is running out and the fate of an entire kingdom rests on her shoulders.
“For anyone who is tired of watching beloved fairy tales that have fallen prey to Disneyfication, Voiceless is a bold and a much-welcome read.” – Vincent Dublado, Readers’ Favorite.
“Voiceless” is a reimagining of “The Little Mermaid”, with a modern and urban vibe that takes the story in a fresh and new direction. … This is an excellent re-invention of the fairytale and one that I enjoyed reading. I highly recommend this for your TBR list!” – Rose Brown, Goodreads.

Anna Finch lives in Melbourne, Australia, where she works as a teacher of English and Humanities by day and as a writer by night. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Legal Studies with a major in Literature and Law and a Master of Teaching secondary.
Voiceless is her Debut novel. After participating in NANOWRIMO, she discovered she could write a novel and decided to just go for it—she hasn’t looked back since. She hopes that her Young Adult Urban Fantasy novel will delight Coming of Age readers and adults alike. It is a subversion of the classic The Little Mermaid story. Prior to writing her novel, she had been a serial poet and short story writer.
She hopes to thrill, inspire, and reinforce a love of reading in all who pick up her work.
