Tonight, unlike every other night I have walked on the shore, a man stands on the beach near my hiding place. I hadn't expected anyone to be on the beach at this hour, and I'm not sure what to do about the man who stands watching me with such intensity that I want to flee. Eden has often left her home in the sea to walk on the shore in human form, free to enjoy both worlds. But everything changes one evening when a young stranger steals her hidden selchie skin, taking her soul into possession with it. He has selected her to be his future wife, certain that the magic that now binds Eden to him will grow into true devotion. But the longer Eden is forced to obey him, the stronger her desperation grows, and soon she must decide just how much she is willing to sacrifice to be free.Inspired by Kate Chopin's groundbreaking novel, The Awakening, bestselling author Melissa Marr recasts the classic story in a magical twenty-first-century setting, bringing the book's inspired commentary on the roles of women in the modern age to a new, young adult audience.
