The History of a Word 02/07/20
Song of the Current
Like generations of Oresteias, Caroline and her father live and work on the river, but pirates ransack their port and Father is imprisoned for smuggling. Caro faces an ultimatum: for him to be released, she must deliver a mysterious package to Valonikos, alone. Could this be her chance to prove herself to the river gods?
The package contains more than she’d bargained: frustrating, arrogant Markos, the Akhaian Empire’s heir. Enmeshed in a dangerous web of intrigue, spies, sorcerers and rebels, Caro must choose: make the delivery, or find another way to ensure her own and Akhaia's destiny?
Although worlds apart, Caroline and Markos fight to forge futures each can accept - personally and morally - with the magical watery river-lands forms a vibrantly organic backdrop to this absorbing fantasy.
