ABOUT THIS NOVELETTE


A faery sword — A haunted mermaid — A fallen angel

When the fae sword War transports Amy to the scene of a magical crime, she finds more than a dead man. The oldest Watcher, Shadow, newly reborn, saw the murder. The victim isn’t innocent, and the killer remains on the loose.

Haunted by the past, Amy wields a powerful weapon. But the source of her mermaid magic—her wild, untamed feelings—overwhelms. She’s no hero, but the fight comes down to her. She must learn to trust.

Can she and Shadow stop the killer? If they fail, magic—and with it, all the worlds—will never be the same.

A story about awakening magic and lighting the fires of hope.
