1. Prologue

I wake up screaming.

My door opens as a nymph rushes into my room, wraping her arms around me as I take in deep breath.

This is how it goes every night since I turned sixteen.  It’s always the same nightmare.

I’m standing at the edge of a pit; a boy with black hair is begging me not to do it, a girl with blond hair stands behind him, clutching his arm. Their faces are blurred, but they act like they know me.  The ground rumbles under our feet. There is a monster in the pit and it’s clawing its way out, and somehow, I know the only way to stop it is to offer up a sacrifice. Me. ​I jump, not listening to the boy. Not listening as his screams as I fall, fall, fall.

Then I wake up.

“Shhh, it’s okay.” The nymph whispers as she strokes my obsidian hair. But I know it’s not. Despite what they all tell me, I know it’s not.

My father told me this ‘dream’ was a prophesy of my future.

My destiny.

But I don’t want that, I don’t want my life decided for me. But he won’t hear of it.

He says it’s time for me to leave.  

Until yesterday, I thought I was an only child. But apparently, I have a twin. My twin brother (Really? A brother?) and I were separated at birth because we were apparently, we were a danger to each other.  

But tomorrow, my father is sending me to the camp that my twin is living at. I don’t want my life to change but I know I have spent too much time with my father already.  

Oh, I left out one important detail by the way. I’m not an ordinary girl, I’m a half-blood, half human, half god. Who’s my godly parent? Glad you asked, I am the daughter of the sea.
