On The Table Read Magazine, “the best book magazine in the UK“, in Resort Aquatica by Frederic Lee, after the death of his girlfriend, Calvin Banks travels to a resort in the Bermuda Triangle for a story of deadly secrets, romance and mermaids.
In enthralling debut, Resort Aquatica, author Frederic Lee brings glamorous characters and an even more immaculate underwater oasis to life, as he explores themes of power, corruption, secrets and survival.
Calvin Banks had a privileged life of incredible wealth, just like his billionaire father’s, laid out neatly in front of him, until he drunkenly totalled his Lamborghini and cut his girlfriend’s life short in one fell swoop.
In a scheme to outrun justice, Calvin breaks court orders and sets off for an island resort pocketed within the mystical angles of the Bermuda Triangle. The magnificent Resort Aquatica is an ideal tropical destination built of white marble that rises up in tubular stacks amid the neon seascape.
Upon arrival, Calvin encounters Resort Aquatica’s rich and savvy owner, Eve Rampant, who clearly exploits her bigwig guests and poor workers for the sole purpose of profit. Eve lords over the palatial estate heavy-handedly, yet with a beautiful smiling face and the assistance of her five obedient daughters.
To Calvin’s awe, he discovers that the Rampant women are devious mermaids who naturally spring up from the seas on temporary legs each summer. Then, out of nowhere, Calvin finds himself entangled in a binding contract cooked up by Eve that forces him to serve the whims of the Rampant women for decades to come — and keep his mouth shut about their scaly secret. Can Calvin find a way to free himself from this contract and escape Resort Aquatica?
My book offers a fresh take on mermaids, presented in a tropical fantasy adventure full of deadly secrets, romance and deceit. It’s the perfect literary escape!-Frederic Lee
