The Well Between the Worlds

A drowning land holds a dark secret. Lyonesse is sinking. Every year the water inches higher, while people frantically build walls to keep it out. And with each rising tide, the people are tugged closer to the hideous sea-monsters in the bottomless Wells beneath.

Idris Limpet is a mere fisherman’s son. But amid the secrets and whispers of a dangerous city, can he tame the monsters that inhabit the watery world beneath Lyonesse? Will his wits and courage be enough to stand in the way of an evil so deep and poisonous that it could destroy everything he knows?
