Perhaps you may have heard of the fae. Heard of the various courts- Winter, Summer, Spring, Autumn and Night....
But my dear child, how little you know, for there is another court. One that is forgotten and one that rules the sea.
'Mama, what is it that you do above the waters?' 5 years old Cora asked.
'I am our court's emissary. It's wonderful my child, I visit all the other courts to maintain peace. Perhaps one day you will experience it yourself too.' My mother smiled, she was glowing.
14 years later...
My mother held panic in her eyes as she barged into my dressing room. Where I was preparing to be crowned Emissary of the Sea.
She held my face tightly in her hands, ' Run Cora, it's...it's different this time,' She looked down at the floor and back at me again. ' There is chaos within the court. It has never been done for a hundred years.'
The year of the Crown War I realized.
'They will make you stay at all of the courts. You don't know how to play their games. You are their sacrifice. They will make you lose yourself.'
'Who mother? Who!' My breathing turned erratic as her pulses of worry washed over me.
' All of them! Trust yourself, your instincts. Remember you are one with the sea. If you don't make it, you have to unite the courts. Promise me that.' I could hear heavy steps coming our way. She looked at me once more and ran.
Trapped in a web of secrets and deceptive relationships, Cora must find her strength and trust her gifts as Fae of the Sea to ensure her survival. And the survival of the courts. The power of the sea will once again be tested. And this time, it will no longer remain forgotten.
