Publisher's Summary

A gripping, dark LGBT-YA fantasy about two girls who must choose between saving themselves, each other, or their sinking island.

Every year on St. Walpurga's Eve, Caldella's Witch Queen lures a boy back to her palace. An innocent life to be sacrificed on the full moon to keep the island city from sinking.

Lina Kirk is convinced her brother is going to be taken this year. To save him, she enlists the help of Thomas Lin, the boy she secretly loves, and the only person to ever escape from the palace. But they draw the queen's attention, and Thomas is chosen as the sacrifice.

Queen Eva watched her sister die to save the boy she loved. Now as queen, she won't make the same mistake. She's willing to sacrifice anyone if it means saving herself and her city.

When Lina offers herself to the queen in exchange for Thomas' freedom, the two girls await the full moon together. But Lina is not at all what Eva expected, and the queen is nothing like Lina envisioned. Against their will, they find themselves falling for each other as water floods Caldella's streets and the dark tide demands its sacrifice.

Worth it!

I am not a huge y/a fan so I had a hard time getting through the tone in the first few chapters, but by the time the two main characters met I was completely sucked in. Such a wonderful story with characters you can care about, a unique setting, and a believable romance. If you love the ocean, magic, enemies to lovers, or the 1920s you will love this book.

I found The Narration for all of the main characters was amazing, but a little funky for some if the side character, still good overall.

Okay overall

It was a great premise and I loved the lgbtq themed love. However, it was very disjointed a lot of the time and made it hard to follow and remain invested in the story. Good bones, though!

I’m Speechless, I Loved it.

This book was out of this world amazing, I agree that it could have been longer and sort of better; though the book was nice and sad. I Loved this book it’s one of my favorites, I hope someone will enjoy this book as much as I. I can’t express how much I love this book it teaches a valuable lesson that no matter how broken you seem; things will always be more beautiful for haven been broken, even you too.
