Two Moons of Sera, Pavarti K Tyler

Two Moons of Sera  by Pavarti K Tyler is a book released in serial form and is comprised of four volumes, each available for .99 US. This review covers all of them, volumes one through four. Once you come to the end of volume one you will get them all!
The Blurb: Two Moons of Sera Synopsis: In a world where water and earth teem with life, Serafay is an anomaly. The result of genetic experiments on her mother's water-borne line Serafay will have to face the very people responsible to discover who she really is. But is she the only one?

The Story: Sixteen-year-old Serafay and her mother are alone in the world. She has no father, as she was the result of lab experiments carried out on her mother by the technologically advanced land dwelling people, the Erdlanders. Her mother is of the underwater race known as the Sulawet people and was rejected by them when she refused to abort her unborn child. Not welcome in either world, they live in solitude on a forgotten coast.
Sera has many characteristics of the Sulawet people such as webbed toes and the ability to absorb oxygen through her skin. She is completely at home in the ocean. However, she has the long hair of the Erdlanders and needs to occasionally surface and use her lungs.
The two races are eternally at war, and the ocean is a dangerous place. Because of this, Sera is not allowed to forage with her mother when she returns to the sea for food and supplies.
One day while her mother is out foraging, Sera is surprised to meet a young man who is an Erdlander, but is an outcast. She keeps her friend a secret from her mother. As time goes on she finds out his name is Torkek. Tor and Sera develop a close friendship, as the need for comapanionship builds a bond between them.
One day her mother is killed, and Sera is forced to flee. Tor leads her to safety, and to his home.  This is when she discovers he too is an outcast because he is not, as she thought, an Erdlander. She doesn't know what race he is. He has the ability to create fire with his mind. He has been hunted by the Erdlanders all his life, though he'd been briefly adopted by a family.
I LOVED this series.  Sera and Tor are a great couple, and their struggle to find safety takes them to many dangerous places.  Still, they find others like them, others who do not fit in and who are unhappy with the atrocities committed in the name of war.
You won't be able to rest until you have read them all.
