For centuries the mark of Othala has been a death sentence for every witch who bears it. They call these witches sea cursed. Their destiny is to save Galveteen from monsters known as ravagers by casting the spell of Reutterance, which, legend has it, kills them.
The non-magical Trumbull family has ruled Galveteen ever since the bloody coup where they overthrew the witch co-regents, changing the balance between witches and non-magicals. Where once witches were revered, now they are reviled.
Until she is marked by Othala, Demetria has no idea she is a witch. Brought up in a non-magical neighborhood of Seawall North, she’s been taught to regard witches as inferior beings. Now she must face the fact that not only is she something she’s always despised, but sea cursed as well. As the most powerful earth witch on the island, she must somehow learn to control her unfamiliar, powerful magic.
Logan grew up embracing his sea witch heritage in a neighborhood of Seawall South. He is proud to bear the mark of Othala, even when he is derided and sneered at by the Lord Regent’s elite guard and the Regent himself. Brash and rebellious, Logan walks a dangerous line when dealing with the formidable Lord Regent – one that could cost him dearly.
Sparks fly when Logan and Demetria meet. Neither has bargained on love being part of their destiny to save their world.
Together they must battle prejudice as well as ravagers in a race to save Galveteen from destruction.
