In a brutal dystopian water world, where survival depends on skill and smarts, Bird Howsley is a beautiful disaster. A drunken sailor, a sharp-tongued back-talker, and a magnet for chaos, Bird is one bad decision away from watching her life go completely down the drain.

But when a cryptic message from her dead brother sets Bird on a quest to find answers about her past, one reckless act puts her and Sargo in the crosshairs of a dangerous underground organization hell-bent on their demise.
Forced to flee their hometown, they embark on a treacherous voyage across the Salt – where pirates, perilous seas and close quarters stir up emotions neither of them expected, and they discover that the organization they’re running from holds darker secrets than they ever imagined…
