What’s a goddess to do?
After being lost at sea and taken prisoner by yet another denizen of the Titan realm, Quinn finds herself cold, wet, miserable, and very much alone. Until a familiar and unexpected face steps back into her life to remind her who she is—and has always—been: a fighter. Following this revelation, Quinn can only acknowledge that some journeys require circuitous routes, even if that means attaining her freedom and rushing—not to the rescue of her besieged allies—but to the mythical island of Aeaea, home to the infamous witch, Circe, where Quinn will be confronted with cryptic visions of the present and a brutal choice: to sacrifice everything she is on the altar of what she could become, or to continue stumbling around in the dark.
No matter her decision, Quinn knows she must see order restored to the Eighth Sea if she hopes to save her friends and allies. But at what price? The answer to that could cost Quinn her very humanity and will reveal stark truths about her role in the war to come. A war her father predicted and, apparently, prepared for. A war which has already begun to claim the lives of those she cares about and will likely claim many more before all is said and done.
But, before she can worry about any of that, Quinn must go to battle against her old friend and nemesis, rescue her besieged friends, and honor her end of a lopsided bargain—a task which will pit Quinn against her wildest nightmares and her darkest dreams with just one person at her side...a certain mouthy wizard from St. Louis—Nate Temple.
The waters get even murkier as Quinn gets caught in a current that draws her closer and closer to the secrets which surround Atlantis, to the gates of the Underworld and the lost souls which lie beyond, and to the mysterious figure of her father, a wizard so powerful he defied time itself.
Some people like to say that when it rains, it pours. But then they must never have met Quinn MacKenna...because in her case it’s always hurricane season.
