Summary

When a young boy recovers an artefact from the sea, he discovers the old gods they worshipped were not what they seemed and attempts to stop them returning

The underwater gods of The Myriad were as real as the coastlines and currents, and as merciless as the winds and whirlpools. Then one day they rose up and tore each other apart, killing many hundreds of islanders and changing the Myriad forever.

On the jumbled streets of the Island of Lady's Crave live 14-year-old street urchins Hark and his best friend Jelt. They are scavengers: diving for relics of the gods, desperate for anything they can sell. But there is something dangerous in the deep waters of the undersea, calling to someone brave enough to retrieve it.

Nothing is quite as it seems, and when the waves try to claim Jelt, Hark will do anything to save him, and the islands that he loves. Even if it means a death-defying journey into the strange dark-light of the Undersea, to face not only who his friend has become, but what.
