Set in a kingdom where danger lurks beneath the sea, mermaids seek vengeance with song, and magic is a choice.

She will reign.

As princess of the island kingdom Visidia, Amora Montara has spent her entire life training to be High Animancer—the master of souls. The rest of the realm can choose their magic, but for Amora, it’s never been a choice. To secure her place as heir to the throne, she must prove her mastery of the monarchy’s dangerous soul magic.

When her demonstration goes awry, Amora is forced to flee. She strikes a deal with Bastian, a mysterious pirate: he’ll help her prove she’s fit to rule, if she’ll help him reclaim his stolen magic.
But sailing the kingdom holds more wonder—and more peril—than Amora anticipated. A destructive new magic is on the rise, and if Amora is to conquer it, she’ll need to face legendary monsters, cross paths with vengeful mermaids, and deal with a stow-away she never expected… or risk the fate of Visidia and lose the crown forever.

I am the right choice. The only choice. And I will protect my kingdom.


This book was a slow starter for me, it did take a while for me to dig deep into reading and not want to put it down, but when it came oh boy oh boy, did I not want to put it down. The Story is about a girl called Amora who is set to take over the kingdom on her birthday after a ritual is done. Her Birthday comes and it does not go to plan as in this celebration, all goes terribly wrong and the “monster” takes over her body and she was not able to control it inside of her. This gets her sent to prison and this outsider named Bastian comes to her rescue and bails her out.

Once at see aboard Bastian’s ship Keel Haul, they are not alone and are accompanied by Ferrick who is Amora’s soon to be husband. They are on the mission to help Amora win back her kingdom and also help Bastian with his things. The events in this book get better and better as you read along. There is a sort of love triangle which then burns out as Ferrick shows interest in the mermaid Vataea as he grows very fond of her. The foursome go on an adventure to save all magic and the lands who need it the most. 

Amora, learns not only of what her father has kept from her but also learns the truth behind the magic and what her father kept from her and why he never let her sail the seas with him when she was young.

Overall, If you love adventure, pirates, and love interest this is the book for you. Learning of new islands, different magic and why certain island where suffering.
