'Til Death Do Us Part (An Adult Retelling of The Little Mermaid)
When you love someone so much that your heart aches without them in your life, would you give up everything you've ever known to be with them? Would you give up your identity?
This is exactly what Aria did. But her sacrifice comes at a great cost, with startling consequences. With no memory of her previous life, she's forgotten what she really is, and who she's left behind: a jealous, possessive God, who's finally found her, and will stop at nothing to keep her heart from ever straying again.
In this dark and passionate retelling of The Little Mermaid, can a love founded on humanity, stand the passing of time, an angry sea-God, and even death itself?
