Publisher's Summary

The highly anticipated sequel to the New York Times best seller Skin of the Sea, in which the world must pay the price for one mermaid’s choice, and a dark force reverberates across realms. Perfect for fans of Children of Blood and Bone and those eagerly anticipating the live-action film adaptation of The Little Mermaid.

One life.

One choice.

One sacrifice.

To save those closest to her, Simi traded away everything: her freedom, her family, and the boy she loves. Now she is sworn to serve a new god, watching over the Land of the Dead at the bottom of the ocean.

But when signs of demons begin to appear, it’s clear there are deeper consequences of Simi’s trade. These demons spell the world’s ruin...and because of Simi, they now have a way into the human realm.

With the fate of the world at stake, Simi must break her promise and team up with a scheming trickster of a god. And if they succeed, perhaps Simi can also unbreak her heart along the way, and find herself again.

"Epic and original.... Simi's story will stay with me for a long time.” (Nicola Yoon, number one New York Times best-selling author of Instructions for Dancing)

African Heritage

I have enjoyed Soul of the Deep just as I have enjoyed Skin of the Sea. I have been on a journey to learn myself and others as a black gay man in America. I recommend this book to anyone who knows they are different from others and want to honor that difference. By loving ourselves as individuals, it’s easier to accept others and have a peaceful life.

Simply Captivating!

It is not often in this day and time that the sequel to an amazingly written book, is just as captivating as its predecessor. Natasha Bowen has a fan for life in me. I can't wait to read more from her!

Excellent Story

My heart and soul are elated by listening to this story. The history, spiritualism, and magic are stimulating and intriguing. I wish to purchase the hardcover for my grandchildren to read. Loved the books and will look for other things from this author.
