Roern grew up knowing he was different – that was just part of being fated to become Groom to the Land. He loved his family, loved his place in the sea, but longed for the day when he could claim his Bride and settle in to the life destiny told him he would have. Thalia, the Bride to his Groom, was a kind, sweet daughter of the land, and being her husband was going to be no hardship at all.
Except, after their wed everything goes wrong. The magic their union was supposed to make – the magic that would heal Dying Lands and the Barren Sea – does nothing to stop the spreading blight. Worse, it soon becomes obvious that whatever this illness is has spread to the Bride. Desperate to give his wife her dying wish, Roern uses a spell to unite her with her parents one last time – and discovers that nothing is as it’s supposed to be.
Will there be enough time to make things right? Or does this discovery come at too late a date?
