Summary

A Mami Wata mermaid must embark on a treacherous journey to make amends for saving the life of a boy at sea and endangering her people.

This is the story of a great love - a love that will threaten worlds and anger Gods.
This is a story that will change history.

Simidele is one of the Mami Wata, mermaids duty-bound to collect the souls of those who die at sea and bless their journeys back home to the Supreme Creator.
But when a living boy is thrown overboard a slave ship, Simi saves his life, going against an ancient decree and bringing terrible danger to the mami wata.
Now Simi must journey to the Supreme Creator to make amends - a journey of vengeful gods, treacherous lands and legendary creatures. If she fails, she risks not just the fate of all Mami Wata, but also the world as she knows it.
An epic love story infused with West African mythology.

NOTE : The book has spot foiling on the front cover and spine.

Book of the week

Beautiful and harrowing at the same time, there's a lot going on and it requires full attention, but the rewards are ample. The writing is descriptive, it's quite heart breaking in parts. A thought provoking, mesmerizing read and set for a sequel.

Content advisory

Depictions of violence, enslavement, death and suicide.
