Helvia Terrasidia Aquitania is a loyal legionnaire striving to be accepted as a beneficarius, a Legion police officer, so she can protect and serve. She constantly finds herself entangled with Anaïs Lavreplesthar, a clever Aquitani pirate who expertly walks the tightrope of doing crime without sufficient evidence for imprisonment.
But one day, Helvia catches Anaïs red-handed committing a crime . . . A crime that could spell death for both of them. Now Helvia and Anaïs are on the run, reluctant partners as they try to figure out what to do with a siren child Anaïs found in a wrecked ship.
A siren child who calls storms and raises the dead.
A siren child the Imperia will do anything to get alive.
