“2022 saw the introduction of Aella, the girl destined to destroy the world…and in 2023, we’ll see what happens when that girl has nothing left to lose,” said Alex Antone, Editorial Director at Skybound. “Mairghread Scott and Pablo Tunica are firing on all cylinders with the second volume of their high-seas, high-fantasy trilogy—we can’t wait for what comes next!”
For teenage Aella, growing up is hard. It’s even harder when you find out that you’re the reincarnation of an ancient sea serpent named Xir that’s destined to destroy the world! Aella always dreamed of a life filled with excitement and adventure, but soon gets more than she bargained for as a fanatical religious organization of zealots, trained warriors and pirates comes to her island looking to destroy the world-ending serpent. Fortunately, you don’t earn the title of Sea Serpent’s Heir without becoming more than a little dangerous yourself…
“Prophesy turns deadly as Aella and Bashir choose their sides,” said Mairghread Scott. “We’ve pulled out all the stops in this fantastical brawl of a sequel.”
