[Former Wattpad Pick] "Drika should have been used to that stillness, that waxy pale skin, but this child wasn't like the cadavers she dissected in class. Though his wrist was cold, he had a faint pulse." Against her professor's orders, Drika van Meer investigates a child's supernatural coma. With help from a treasonous young doctor, she uncovers a conspiracy involving the Prince of Orange, the Holy Imperial College, and a mysterious sea creature with a taste for blood. An enchanting tale of romance and mystery set in a unique, far-future world blending elements of steampunk and magic. ⥽⟐⥼ This book also contains a holiday-themed bonus story: High school student Drika van Meer hasn't spoken with her sister since her wedding. Now, almost a year later, she's headed to Elle's home for Summer's Eve. But forgiveness will be the last thing on the sisters' minds when something threatens their holiday preparations. ⥽⟐⥼ Featured on: @WattpadExplorer - Editor's Choice (December 2018 - May 2019) @_Dark_Fantasy - The Bestiary Also a "Staff Pick" on Tapas!
