Captured by the merciless Judiciary, Ari Moreau is a prisoner in her own body. She cannot move. Cannot speak. Immediate death awaits if she reveals that even a trace of her true identity still exists. Her only hope is that her family remains safe and that somehow the wizard resistance does too.
But when she learns the Judiciary is pursuing a mysterious new target beneath the waves, her situation becomes even more dire. If the Judiciary finds what they seek, they will crush the wizard resistance and the mermaids alike—and they intend for Ari to lead them straight to their goal.
To fight back could mean death. To remain hidden will mean the loss of everyone she loves. With the fate of the world at stake and no one to fight by her side, can Ari break free in time to save her family and her people from annihilation?
