Overview

"An amazing fantasy... readers will
excitedly follow Kassandra's every step as she
discovers who she really is."
—Flamingnet Review

Four stars. I could almost feel the raging sea…
—Curled up with a good kid's book

An army of the drowned dead, family betrayal, an exiled witch who doesn't know she has power--or that enemies are lurking all around her, spying on her. Follow Kassandra as she discovers who and what she is in this moving underwater fantasy.

Kassandra comes from the sea, but she has no memory of saltwater, seagulls, or an incoming tide. She's never seen an ocean, never heard the thunder of surf. She's an exile, betrayed by her own family, sent as far from the sea as they could arrange--somewhere in the middle of Nebraska.

Everything changes the day she drowns in Red Bear Lake, and discovers she can't really drown. Not in the way everyone else can. Then a two-thousand year old king wakes inside her head and turns out to be a prodigy with mathematics. Kassandra cries for the first time in her life, and learns that her tears are doorways for calling things from the sea. With clues from summoned sea-demons and the voices in her head, Kassandra sets out to find out what the hell is going on...and discovers she's a prisoner, trapped between a murderous grandfather who controls an army of the drowned dead, river witches who spy on her through the plumbing, and Ms. Matrothy, the Girl's Department Director, who's been trying to kill her since she was four.

    Great story with wonderful twists.

    This story is wonderful. You certainly feel as though you are in Kassandra's shoes as she battles to learn more about her past, family, and why she is tormented by such an insufferable witch of a woman at her school. If only she had a home to flee to, maybe it wouldn't be so bad. Then there's the ancient royalty arguing in her head. Is she going insane. Join her to discover a struggle to save the world from the unknown and help Kassandra find true peace.

    I won this book on goodreads from the author himself. There were even some goodies sent along with it as well! This book was a great fantasy that I loved very much. Kept me on the edge of my seat and gave me a totally new way of looking at the sea and the mythology of sea creatures. Beautifully written with very likable characters and such great descriptions that you actually feel like your there. Thank you so much for giving me this book I might have passed and missed out on. The end had me wondering what was in store for Kassandra next. I will definitely be buying the next two books in this trilogy! A must read for fantasy lovers.
