The waters of Null are dark and full of secrets.

After nearly drowning and the past year of their life slipping away in a fog, 17-year-old Quinn is desperate to return to their chosen home and their best friend, Ishani. They’ve also realized they’re in love with her but their timing sucks—Ishani’s little brother is missing, maybe dead, by the same rogue wave that grabbed Quinn, and there might be something much more deadly happening in Null.

As bodies start to pile up on shore, none of them Ishani’s brother, and more townsfolk go missing, rumors start to spread. Whisperings about the origins of the town, and how the Merfolk that lent their magic to create it are coming back to demand a sacrifice. A series of earthquakes shakes the foundation of the already off-kilter town as if trying to rip it away from the earth itself. Quinn and their friends must unravel the truth of Null’s past to save the only place that’s ever felt like home, even if doing so means forfeiting their own lives. If they fail, they might not even remember Null, or anyone in it.
