Leaving is a death sentence. Staying might be worse.


For centuries, humans have hunted and killed elemists, like seventeen-year-old Emery, forcing them to hide away on an island they raised from the ocean. But now, a devastating illness is ravaging the community, including Emery’s beloved sister, stripping elemists of their powers to control the elements, or simply killing them. Unless the illness can be halted, the island will fall.  

Then an outsider, Tavor, lands on their shores. Though human, Tavor seeks to bring an end to the conflict that has been raging between elemists and his kind. He makes Emery’s people an offer: send an ambassador back with him to introduce to the human world and help facilitate the beginnings of reconciliation. 

When Emery has the choice to be that ambassador, she must decide: refuse Tavor’s aid, remain in the safety of the island, and hope they can fight the illness before it slowly destroys her home and kills her sister, or risk exposing her people to the countless dangers of the outside world and gain not only a cure but the freedom they’ve been denied for so long.

The decisions made will launch Emery across oceans wrought with peril, including storms, sea monsters, and a crew of rebel elemists who wreak havoc across the seas, ensuring peace between humans and elemists remain far out of reach.

Soon, Emery must accept that truth and justice are not as clear-cut as they appear, and people are not always what they seem. Who should she trust when everyone has secrets, and the wrong choice could destroy everything she holds dear?

There are no allies on the sea.


Emery Aalokin is desperate to find a cure for the Withering, and to finally learn what happened to her missing parents. She doesn’t know where to start looking for a cure, but when a lead points her towards a treasure that could contain not only riches, but the information she’s searching for about her parents, she enlists the help of Captain Sean Denzel – AKA the Scourge of the Sea - promising him and his crew the treasure if they find it. Sean agrees to help but Emery can tell he’s keeping secrets. But she’s keeping secrets too, and she isn’t sure spilling them is worth risking both of their lives, especially when she can no longer deny the growing spark between them. What more, enemies new and old swarm the seas, and it’s difficult to know who to trust.


If Emery wants to complete her missions - and survive - she’ll need to keep her wits about her upon a sea full of vengeance and secrets.
