Once upon a time . . . that's how the old stories always begin. Once upon a time there was a king of a fallen kingdom. He was just and he was beloved. Or so the numbers said. One day, he gathered together the greatest, wisest minds in all the land-not sorcerers, but scientists-and he bade them fashion him a son. A prince. A perfect prince to embody his father's legacy. The scientists each brought the prince a gift: beauty, strength, ambition, intellect, pride. But they must have forgotten something because when he saw the mermaids dance at the Cirque de la Mer, he ran away to join them. For a year, he trained them, performed with them, thought he was happy. For a year he thought he was free. But then Nerites came: A merman who refused to be tamed. A captive from another kingdom. A beast in a glass cage. The old stories always end with happy ever after. But this isn't one of the old stories. This is a story of princes and monsters.
