"You are not a killer."
When Thea Galleon finally gained her mermaid tail at nineteen, she expected it to be one of the six Pisciessoan tail colors she had known all her life. She had no idea hers would be a seventh color, one that would mark her as a deadly and powerful threat. Now The Council will stop at nothing to keep Thea under their control, and she must put her life in the hands of a foreigner named Bellamy—the same mysterious tentacled intruder she was arrested for defending, with whom she shares a bond unlike any she has ever known.
Thrust into the unfamiliar Cephalian world of Bellamy's volcanic homeland, Thea grapples with the catastrophic results of her terrifying new power, all the while desperate to live a life of her own choosing. An ancient grudge means Bellamy is the only one of his kind who trusts her, and his belief that she can master her power might be the only thing that saves Thea—and everyone she will ever come in contact with. As the specter of war looms, the mission they undertake together will bring Thea to the very edge of who she is, and what she is willing to do to put others before herself.
Will Thea be able to achieve the control she so desperately seeks, or will she become the monster everyone fears?
