Shipping calculated at checkout.

Anene is chosen as her generation's bride to the river god Nniro - but when she arrives in the world of the gods, instead of a welcoming groom, she finds Nniro with his heart ripped out of his chest. While she had never wanted to marry a stranger, god or no, Nniro's death could threaten the river her village depends on, and thus the life of everyone she knows and loves. With nothing but her own determination to guide her, she sets off on a quest to restore Nniro's heart.

Macklin has created a magical world of strange creatures and capricious gods, where a young woman can discover what she is truly made of.
