Margot is the daughter of a king, but she is beloved by neither his court nor his kingdom. She has water in her blood,” a trait associated with magic and looked upon with distaste and suspicion. When she meets Orrin, a foreign king who is respectful, not scornful, of her affinity for water, she flees with him to his castle by the sea, though she soon realizes he is not as benevolent as she first thought. Intertwined with Margot’s story is that of Bird, a storyteller who must tell stories for Orrin, though he can barely stand him. When Orrin steals the Book of the Sea, a magical gift given to Margot by her mother, Margot knows she must run away once again, and the threads of the two stories begin to intertwine.
A convincing and beautifully realized world, a strong-minded female protagonist, and elements of Celtic folklore mark this rich, multilayered fantasy. Author’s note.

Having escaped from her father's control with help from a handsome holy man who is king of a western land, fifteen-year-old Princess Margot finally travels to the sea where her mother lived, and from which she can draw a powerful magic.
