Young Adult Fantasy Romance
Descended from Jūratė, a murdered sea goddess, seventeen-year-old Nyada must prove she’s a true mermaid’s daughter by calling out amber from the Baltic Sea. When her song summons an enchanted stone that binds her to Perun, the fiery god of storms who killed Jurata in a jealous rage, Nyada is drawn into a dangerous charade. To all appearances, she’s blissfully delighted at the prospect of becoming his immortal bride. But her smiles are as false as her declarations of joy, for Nyada is a girl sworn to vengeance.
Her plan? Seduce Perun with her siren’s voice, learn his weakness, and destroy him.
But the turbulent god destined to be her mate beguiles and charms Nyada. Yes, he’s as wild as the tempests he brews, but there’s a gentler side to him, a kindness few see. He isn’t a fiend. And that changes everything.
With the marriage ceremony fast approaching—and a sly snake of a god threatening to expose her scheme—Nyada must decide if she will honor her oath or take her place beside a god who’s stolen her heart.
