Oria is the best reaper in Folkvangr. At least she used to be.
Until she meets a mortal, Wells. He seems like a typical American pie, mac’n cheese kind of guy. She plays the same game with him she does with everyone else. She tries to trick him into making a decision he can never recover from, marking his soul hers. Everything goes exactly as planned. She leaves, certain he’s going to fall for the same tricks. Just like everyone else.
Except he doesn’t.
Not only that, but when his ticket doesn’t come due, she looks him up again only to discover he’s protected by some holier-than-thou divine reaper she knows all too well. A reaper who used to be her betrothed.
And because this crazy party for three keeps going, she finds out Odin himself has issued a cease and desist order on the human. Just who is he? Why is he so protected? She going to find out.
But doing so might very well change the foundation of the nine worlds.
Mischal has always hated her mermaid half, and now it's going to get her killed.
Mischal has lived her entire life in Havenport with her father. She's one of the best merchants in the area and people come to her when they can't get what they need. Her influence over the inner workings of the city are a bit fluid. Somedays they're good. Somedays… well, less so.
When a strange Librarian sweeps into the city in a strange ship asking around for a royal mermaid, the tides turn against her. Mischal has no idea who her mother was, only that she was abandoned to live with her human father. As the Librarian gets ever closer to her, she uncovers the mystery of her past.
And how it ties to her Dag'draath.
The entire thing is improbable. She just wants to be a simple merchant taking care of her ailing father.
When he dies, though, everything changes. She loses her anchor. She loses her merchandise. She loses her very identity.
Who is she and how can she help in the fight against Dag'draath?
She's about to find out.
