A short story set before The Lost Wings
Nerida was planning on a calm evening at home—not hiding from robbers among the mountains.
What happened to make the mermaid Nerida go up to the surface at the beginning of The Lost Wings? This short story—which can be read as a stand-alone—is a literal dive into the deep blue sea, to the city of Navalis, where we get a glimpse of the humble beginnings of a young woman born not only at the bottom of the ocean, but at the bottom of society.
