She's destined to save the world . . . if she doesn't destroy it first.
Calandra has always done what's expected of her. As the most powerful healer since the Madwoman who sank Atlantis, Calandra has been raised to heal the Heartstone that protects the all-female undine race from the humans they fear and need. One problem—to ensure success, she must use siren magic to mind-bond the one man she swore to free, her childhood friend Osaze. And all the powerful healers go Mad eventually.
A cryptic message reveals a brother she never knew existed, the first male undine in three millennia, who might be the answer to her prayers—but she has no idea where he is. As insanity looms and the Heartstone continues to fail, she uncovers a shocking secret and fears the only way to avert global disaster is to re-bond Osaze. Can she break the bonds of her past in time to save the world, the man she loves . . . and herself?
The Undine's Tear is the first book in the mind-blowing young adult epic historical fantasy series Rise of the Grigori. If you like complex characters, lush world-building, ancient cultures, mermaids, dragons, angels, and demons, join Calandra in a search for redemption that will threaten the very fabric of the universe.
