Skin of the Sea
Simidele can only recall life as Mami Wata- a mermaid – following the tides and laws of the gods. As Mami Wata, her duty is to collect the souls of those who die at sea and bless their journeys back home to the Supreme Creator.
But when a living boy is thrown overboard, Simi does the unthinkable—she saves his life, going against an ancient decree. And punishment awaits those who dare to defy it.
To protect the other Mami Wata, Simi must journey to the Supreme Creator to make amends. Danger lurks at every turn, and as Simi draws closer, she must brave vengeful gods, treacherous lands, and legendary creatures. Because if she doesn’t, then she risks not just the fate of all Mami Wata, but also the world as she knows it.
This is a story of a great love and resistance- a love that will threaten worlds and anger Gods.
Of a terrible choice and the lives that hang in the balance.
This is a story that will change history.
