Is love really the only thing O'Asia needs to save the waters? Or, is that just the tip of the iceberg? O'Asia and Zale need to fall in love, but they're currently surrounded by angry guards ready to uphold the law. Can Odessa succeed in protecting them both?
With Emperor Seera now back in open waters, they quickly become more dangerous for one merm in particular, and O'Asia soon realizes that the prince and his love aren't the only things she needs to protect. She has to protect them all.
As secrets are uncovered and characters are put to the ultimate test, it becomes apparent that what they all want and what the water needs is two completely different things. What was once seen as the enemy must now become the ally, and what once appeared black and white, now clearly isn't.
As unlikely partnerships are made and the waters move closer to being truly free, all rests first on O'Asia grasping her advanced sorcery. But will she succeed in time? And what other abilities will she uncover within herself that will help her on her quest to make the waters perfect again?
