There had been whispers of a magical hidden alcove within the Fenix Forest of Ameral Alley for years, but according to legend, no one had ever found it.
Seventeen-year-old Halia Bodine, a girl with a medically baffling rare lung disease, begins to dream of a map that leads her to the hidden alcove of Moa’s Rock. In the depths of this magical alcove exists the vibrant underwater world of M’deia, with its hunter tribes, alluring creatures, ghastly beasts, and untouched lands. After a fated encounter with Luka, a M’deian boy in exile from his clan, Halia enters this mythical underwater world. Once there, she learns that her illness ceases to exist, that she loves without reciprocation, and the cold truth of her parents’ death.
When her family heirloom — a timepiece cursed with the power to end all lives of the sea’s inhabitants — is found in an ancient enemy’s wicked hands, Halia soon discovers that this world is not without its own lurking dangers. First, her foe turns the tribes to stone. Next, he wants Halia dead.
When Halia comes face-to-face with her fears, will she finally have the chance to go back in time and save both the stone tribe and her parents from their unfortunate deaths, or will her enemy destroy her and all she holds dear before she can?
Bree Lenehan is an Australian radio personality, singer, and author. Her passion for creativity and mixing magic with transformative morale through the power of words flows through all of her work. She may not have found the wardrobe to Narnia, the Bridge to Terebithia or received a letter from Hogwarts, but she did fall upon the passage to Moa’s Rock. The world inside Bree’s first novel Pembrim: The Hidden Alcove came to her many years ago, in the backwoods of her grandparents' property, where she stumbled upon a secret waterhole that became her daily escape from the real world.

LISTEN TO THE PEMBRIM PLAYLIST!
This is the (sometimes dark and gritty, sometimes wondrous and magical) music I listened to while writing Pembrim. This list of songs truly encapsulates the tribal, mysterious aura found within the story... I highly suggest listening to the Pembrim playlist while you read it.
