In the spring of 1810, the death of his father – and discovery of an
unknown uncle – sends fifteen year-old Samuel Harlowe from his simple
life in England across the sea on a journey filled with dangers and

And when a kraken attacks his ship, Samuel must choose to whether to let his crewmates perish in the watery depths, or to pay the price demanded by the Caribbean goddess Mami Wata, the Mother of the Waters.
