Chloe always dreamed of visiting the ocean, and now the ocean is the only place she has left to go. Trapped in the form of a mermaid and on the run from the Sylphaen, her best chance for safety lies in traveling with Zeke to his underwater home and staying under his protection there.

Leaving isn’t easy, however. Her best friend doesn’t know where she’s gone, and her family doesn’t either. She’s been forced to abandon Noah, the boy she’s liked for years and who she’s just discovered likes her too. She only hopes Zeke’s people will help her so she can return soon.

But when conspiracies follow her and people start to die, safety becomes harder to find than ever. The Sylphaen are coming. They’re more powerful than she could have imagined.

And they’re not through with Chloe yet.

“What the hell were you thinking, Noah?”

“Dad, I–”

He crossed the room and put his arms around me. I blinked, taken back by the gesture.

Releasing a breath, he pushed me away again. “What happened?”

I struggled for words, still floundering with shock. “I-I went after Chloe, and while I was gone they came to the cabin.”

“They knew about us?”

A short scoff escaped me, not quite a laugh since nothing was funny. “Dad, you sent one of them through a window and nearly put the other through the wall. I think they figured out we weren’t human.”

He gave me a dark look and my sarcasm died.

“And then you brought her here.”

“I had to. They’d injected her with something. It was killing her. Forcing her to change into one of them even though she wasn’t in the water. If I hadn’t gotten her to the ocean…”

Dad sighed, turning away and pacing across the room. “Will she come back?”

I paused. “The other ones said she couldn’t. Not till that drug was gone.”

“Other ones?”

The grimace tried to return. “Dehaians. They met us on the beach. I think they were looking for her.”

He ran a hand over his hair. “Noah…”

“I didn’t know they’d be there! I…”

Frustrated, I looked down, not sure what I was attempting to say. I’d been trying to save her life. I couldn’t let her die.

A breath escaped me. She’d just been Baylie’s friend. The beautiful, kind-of-shy girl who avoided me when I visited Kansas on holidays, though I’d never been able to figure out why. I’d always hoped to talk to her, and when she’d finally come to Santa Lucina and I had the chance…

My fists curled against the memory of my last moments with her. Of kissing her and feeling her against me. I’d wanted to do that for weeks, ever since that first night on the beach. She’d looked amazing by the water, silhouetted by the moonlight, and everything about her fascinated me. I’d held back, though, thinking what I was would make things difficult. Thinking she was human.

I’d never expected this.
