Reviews

A richly realized underwater tale set in Meristem in the central Atlantic Ocean. That is, until we reach the jewel at the novel's center. Here Faruqi riffs on the importance of honoring your own radiance, and it truly shines.
Sonia Faruqi has created an imaginative, fast-paced adventure with a strong theme of ocean conservation. Bravo! May many read, and heed, its message.--Jonathan Balcombe, author of 'What a Fish Knows'
A fascinating novel that blends mermaid lore with social commentary on how we treat the environment.
The world's first ocean conservation novel. Faruqi possesses a unique ability to create a fantastical underwater world while tying in explicit scientific facts that reflect her background in investigative journalism. An entertaining and informative mix of ocean science and literary fiction.
The Oyster Thief deftly weaves a mermaid's tale while bringing real and urgent ocean conservation issues to the reader's attention. Dive in and enjoy!--Dr. Sylvia Earle, award-winning ocean scientist and National Geographic explorer-in-residence
The Oyster Thief is a wildly imaginative journey on land and in the ocean that will have you anxiously turning pages late into the night to discover the fate of Coralline and Izar--and the underwater world itself. Beautifully written and emotionally complex. Anyone who is a fan of Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game will fall in love with this novel.--Julie McElwain, author of 'A Murder in Time'
