Publisher Comments:

Captain Vidarian Rulorat's great-grandfather gave up an imperial commission to commit social catastrophe by marrying a fire priestess. For love, he unwittingly doomed his family to generations of a rare genetic disease that follows families who cross elemental boundaries. Now Vidarian, the last surviving member of the Rulorat family, struggles to uphold his family legacy, and finds himself chained to a task as a result of the bride price his great-grandfather paid: The priestess Endera has called upon Vidarian to fulfill his family's obligation by transporting a young fire priestess named Ariadel to a water temple far to the south, through dangerous pirate-controlled territory. Vidarian finds himself at the intersection not only of the world's most volatile elements, but of the ancient and alien powers that lurk between them...

Review:

"A merchant captain and a priestess stumble into a web of politics, magic, and ambition in this likable high seas fantasy adventure debut. Long ago, the goddess of Chaos was locked away, and most people think that was a good thing. But magic has been fading from the world, children of mixed magical bloodlines have been dying of a mysterious disease, and Capt. Vidarian can hear the goddess begging to be released. Thanks to an accident of heritage, only he can hear and free her — or decide to make her imprisonment eternal. The characters are personable and well written, and the plot moves along almost too quickly, with almost no setting or wider world-building to speak of. The straightforward story will appeal to adult and young adult readers looking for high fantasy without the fancy language or cast of thousands. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
