Nerissa Marin has reclaimed her birthright and assumed the mantle of queen of Waterfell, but all is not calm beneath the ocean’s surface. As signs of unrest emerge, a missive arrives that her royal consort, Lokeane Seavon, has been poisoned with a deadly biotoxin.

Riss has no choice but to go landside. Leaving her undersea throne in the hands of unknown enemies is a risk, but Lo’s survival is her only concern. Her courage will be challenged, trusted allies will become enemies, and her heart will face its greatest trial.

To defend her throne and save her prince, a warrior queen must rise.

“A page-turning blend of magical realism and fantasy.”  Booklist
