Sea of Twisted Souls
by Megan Cutler
When Damian reappears without warning, Morulin isn't interested in making amends. She'd rather spend her time with the enigmatic Pilgrim, a dimensional traveler with plenty of stories to tell. That Damian seems to loathe him only makes his company more appealing. But she can't ignore her stepfather's strange behavior, especially when someone attempts to assassinate the island's new heir.

The fog diverted, slamming into the net as the trio anchored it. With all the force of a hurricane, it surged back and forth, trying to break the barrier...
