Lir was human, until he drowned.
Destined to take back the freedom of a merfolk clan called the Halloran, reborn in the depths of the ocean as a half-man, half-Halloran entity, Lir is meant to be a savior. Yet, Lir only wants to be human again, because his people are at war with what he has become.
When the Halloran Queen learns of Lir’s existence, she tracks him down and a race against time begins. If she catches Lir, he will become a slave used against his own kind.
As Lir sets out to find a remedy for his newfound powers, Lir’s mentor, Tobias—the man Lir secretly loves—is determined to aid Lir despite the risks. He could get arrested. They could both die. Lir is thankful for Tobias’s presence, but as the days go on, magic whispers to him that there is no cure. He will never be human again. And to stay alive, Lir must devour what is the most precious to him—Tobias's heart.
