What do you do with a drunken sailor when the world is underwater?

In a brutal dystopian water world, where survival depends on skill and smarts, Bird Howsley is a beautiful disaster. Or...maybe just a disaster, period.

A drunken sailor and a magnet for chaos, Bird is one bad decision away from watching her life go completely down the drain.

Her only lifeline? Level-headed sailing teacher, Sargo Paz. Sargo is a second-generation immigrant striving to prove himself in a city where no one looks like him, and despite Bird's salty demeanor, he seems determined not to give up on her.

But when a cryptic message from her dead brother sets Bird on a quest to find answers about her past, one reckless act puts her and Sargo in the crosshairs of a dangerous underground organization hell-bent on their demise.

Forced to flee their hometown, they embark on a treacherous voyage across the Salt, where pirates, perilous seas and close quarters stir up emotions neither of them expected—and they discover that the organization they're running from holds darker secrets than they ever imagined...

Editorial reviews:

"There is so much to love about this book! The characters are beautiful and broken. The setting is unique, dangerous, and fun...Seriously, if you haven't read this book, read it now! It's so good!"

Starr Z. Davies, award-winning dystopian author

From the author:

Based on my own real-life adventures, and for fans of the Hunger Games, ACOTAR, Fourth Wing, Gideon the Ninth, and Waterworld, this series is a spicy, (very) slow burn adventure romance with the following tropes:

- forced proximity

- opposites attract

- friends-to-lovers

- first love

- trainwreck FMC

- cinnamon roll MMC with crispy edges

- who did this

- found family

- animal companion

- fast-paced, high-stakes adventure

- mental health rep (and addiction)

- LGBTQ+ rep

This series deals with adult themes, including mental health issues and substance abuse (including underage substance abuse) and has one fade-to-black scene in which sexual activity is implied off-page. If you are buying it for a young person, I usually recommend 16+

Printing takes about 10 days. Arrives in approximately 2 weeks.
