Part heist novel, part dark fairy tale, and rich with Welsh legends, The Drowned Woods is an ethereal fantasy, set in the same world as The Bone Houses but with a whole new, unforgettable cast of characters
The right cause can topple a kingdom . . .
Once upon a time, the kingdoms of Wales were rife with magic and conflict - and eighteen-year-old Mererid 'Mer' is well-acquainted with both. As the last living water diviner, she can manipulate water with magic - a unique elemental power many would kill to possess.
For years, Mer has been running from the prince who bound her into his service - and forced her to kill thousands with her magic. Now, all Mer truly wants is a safe, quiet life, far from power and politics.
But then Mer's old handler - the king's spymaster - returns with a proposition: use her powers to bring down the very prince that abused them both.
Perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore and Maria V. Snyder.
