In the underwater empire of Caspia, a storm is brewing.
Aven Fairchilde's efforts to unite the four kingdoms resulted in a temporary peace, but that peace is shattered all over again when she is named the controversial heir to a dying emperor's throne.
The crown on her head makes her a target. One that Kai 'West' Armana would do anything to remove. One that results in an attack, and a curse on the newly crowned empress that will require an unimaginable sacrifice to undo. And that sacrifice is only the beginning.
Because the world is not healed.
The sky is not safe.
And things that should be dead and drowned do not always stay that way.
