Deep in the ocean, the kingdom of Oceania lies in mourning over their recently deceased queen. For some that means a reprieve, but for Crown Princess Alyna, it means being tasked with doing the impossible with her voice alone. In order to save her own scales, Alyna must enlist the help of her twin sister Alysse, the one person in the whole kingdom with a voice more powerful than hers. The one person whose perfection has the power to take the careful facade Alyna has spent her whole life constructing, and bring it down.

I like the story a lot! I just bave a few pointers for you if you'rw interested. 
                              
                              I felt the flow was a little stiff. There was points where it was a bit of a struggle to get through the stiff dialogue. But that's just a matter of prose.
                              
                              But really great story!

Eh? I thought she was a daddy's girl with him wrapped around het finger. She just seems insecure 😕
                              Don't make me feel bad for her

Well of course the queen thought she was trained well, if the queen trained her!

I totally understand the Alyna character and feel for her. She is trying so hard to be perfect. I love your world building as well and the problem you've set up for her right away. Well done.
