With the help of Shea's father, Poseidon, God of the Sea, and her former lover: the goddess of love, she will set out on a quest to find the one being who can help prevent Perses from destroying everything she holds dear.

Read an excerpt
He hasn’t noticed Jo yet and she smiles as she hears the beginning of the song start to play.  
“There were four cities / along the old trident road.”  
Jo sings the first two lyrics of the song, and Beck startles slightly, but he continues to play, smiling the best he can with the flute to his lips, encouraging her to sing the rest.  
She clears her throat; she knows she doesn’t have the best voice if Beck’s chuckles are anything to go by, but she thinks of her mom, imagining Triteia’s voice.  
He begins to play the beginning part of the song again and Jo sits down next to him and hums the first couple notes.  
There were four cities,  
Along the old Trident road.  
It ’twas a pity,  
Divided by code.  
One day a great queen rose,  
The ocean lord’s gem.  
They promised at the willow  
And the el-vens did wept.  
For the empire saw it,  
And slayed the great queen.  
It ’twas a pity,  
United they would have been.  
Now there are four cities,  
Along the old Trident road.  
It ’tis a pity,  
Still divided by code.  
Beck plays the last of the melody before dropping the flute onto his lap.  
Caeruleus swoops down one last time and finally manages to swipe enough water at Beck, splashing him in the face.  
Caeruleus yowls in delight and flies in through the open doorway out of the gardens and to the rest of the house.
