A Silence in the Deep

Description

Sons of the Deep and Daughters of the Earth do not talk, let alone fall in love—the Silence has prevented such things for a hundred years. But when Orpheo and Rose meet, neither has any idea that a simple conversation is about to challenge history and change the future.

Orpheo, son of the Sea King, has to choose whether to become his father's lieutenant or apprentice himself as the Storyteller of the Deep—a position he longs to fill. Rose, a young human queen, must choose a suitor within her succession year or risk losing her kingdom to a jealous cousin. As both Rose and Orpheo struggle with impossible choices, they are drawn inexorably toward each other.

But a terrible bargain with a sea witch looms over their fate. They will either end the hundred-year Silence between their people or repeat the mistakes of the warring past.
