WATTY'S 2018 SHORTLIST.  Exiled from her homeland, notorious pirate captain Dazaara Aviraz makes a living from sinking ships and trading merchandise. Left with only her boundless relationship with water, she longs for a way to return home to her father, where any attempt to infiltrate the continent would result in her immediate execution. 

When an influential buyer blackmails her into undertaking a perilous quest in exchange for the opportunity of reversing her exile, she accepts. 

Yet, with an old darkness swirling beneath the blackest waves and a self-imposed fate looming over her head, the lines between truth, humanity and evil begin to blur. This quest becomes a desperate attempt for survival, and when both her nature and her heritage are questioned, it is a matter of time before the waters she had so dearly loved pull her asunder.
