Being the only human in a world of merfolk... isn't easy. Florence Waverley chose to stay in Niemela, but things have gone awry. Secrets have risen and the prince she cares about has pulled away. All the while, dark dreams warn her of a tragedy that only she can stop. But in order to save the merman she loves, Florence will have to enter the Life Path tournament: a brutal test of fear and madness.
The tournament is a rite of passage--a maze where young mermaids and mermen battle to find their purpose. It is also a place where Florence will face grave danger: mermaids with evil magic, tunnels filled with sea fire, and guardians who wish to use her as a pawn in their secret plans. But will Florence be strong enough to survive the tournament... or will she perish inside it?
Everything hangs in the balance: her life, her world, and her love.

I enjoyed returning to this world in the sea. When we left Florence, things were looking good for her, things were falling into place. As this book opens, we realize that's changed.
Florence finds herself thrown back into danger, deception, and adventure as she tries to create her place among the sea folk.
Imaginative, intriguing, and full of fun, if you enjoy stories about merfolk, this is a must read. (Just read the first book first!)
