Duty before love; legacy before life.
Six months have passed, and Tallora's nightmares are haunted by memories of Solvira and the woman she loves-Empress Dauriel Solviraes, seated on a throne a thousand miles away. But war waits on the horizon, and when rumors of her kingdom's coalition with Moratham surface, Tallora fears her small kingdom will be destroyed between the two warring empires. With the help of new friends-a merfolk prince and a mysterious sea witch-Tallora must return to Solvira in order to stop the rising tides of war.
From the author of FALLEN GODS comes a story of duty and betrayal-and a love that transcends the bounds of land and sea.
