The first in Azure Maris' series. What does it mean to be a mermaid out of water? Azure Maris, princess of Deep Waters is grounded in the Chesapeake Bay region. She must learn how to live life above the waves while she strives to return home. She cannot return home since the sea kingdom off the coast opposes Azure’s kingdom. In addition, Azure finds that she is the object of affection to Mano Leo-mana, a sumu ba-ashma—fallen angel— who desires to destroy Deep Waters. Azure knows of the sumu ba-ashma, but has never met one, nor deflected the romantic attentions of one.
The Frankels, who took Azure into their home, realize that God, as well as His creation, is bigger than they ever thought possible. Hiram and Helen Frankel struggle with the news that Azure has revealed, even as they struggle with the concept of their son, Eliam falling in love with Azure ... and she with him.
Not all that resides below the waves honors the Most High. Not everything that swims in the waters is as it appears. The question becomes clear: when fallen angels walk and mermaids dance, just how big is your God?

Azure, Eliam and Mitch arrive at the island where Hiram's parents live, but Azure learns that not everything is as it appears. While Mano Leo-mana seems distant, his presence and power is felt everywhere. Despite the fears and dangers, hope arrives at the island in the form of Azure's brothers, Yo ash and Brun. Together, the youngest three members of the Deep Waters priesthood learn about the history of the island and its connection to Deep Waters. With the help of her friends and family, Azure discovers why Mano Leo-mana pursues her as well as how she can dissuade him. Struggles arise, though, as Azure realizes that the path laid out before her seems counter-intuitive to what the Lord would desire to her to do. Who are these shamans that control the villages on the island? Will her presence bring more troubles to the villagers who follow the Most High? The path is now clear, but the darkness settles around Azure Maris. When the Lord s path leads into darkness - do you follow?
