When I was a child, the usurper invaded my country. My family died in front of me and left Castle Ambrose in tatters. Since then, the usurper has ruled over Hamlin, and I’ve wanted nothing more than to see him dead.
Life at Castle Ambrose isn’t all bad for Janna. She has a secret - she can communicate with the sea serpent living in the loch. When merchants visit Castle Ambrose, Janna hears that the earl of Ambrose’s sons are still alive but imprisoned. If she can free them, they can round up rebels from across Hamlin and rid themselves of the filthy usurper.
Civil war churns on the horizon, but Janna’s loyalties waver. The sea serpents can destroy the enemy’s ships...and Janna must decide who that enemy is.
