“I want to be beautiful. I want to be interesting. I want to be enough.”

That was Ferra Brickminder’s prayer to win back the love of her life. And the gods answer—just not in the way she expected. After hoping for a miracle, Ferra instead watches her skin turn into delicate and dangerously breakable porcelain.

Elsewhere, Brigantine de la Girona, a disgraced orc pirate captain, has her own problems. Penniless and banished from her home, Brig struggles to make ends meet with her crew as her only support. So, when a desperate Ferra enlists Brig to sail her across the Great Sea to her ex-girlfriend’s home for a very handsome fee, Brig is happy to strike a deal.

Pampered Ferra and tough-as-nails Brig quickly butt heads, bickering their way across the high seas, but as they encounter increasingly perilous obstacles—including the gods themselves—the two become reluctant allies…and maybe more.

Notes on This Title

The main characters of this title are two queer women.




“Part fantasy, part fairy tale, part action-adventure—and all heart.” (Source: Kirkus Reviews)

“Incorporating comic beats common to animated cartoons, Riesbeck’s dialogue highlights characters’ feelings in nearly every panel, while emanata-filled, candy-hued art from Barna leans into scraps and blushes.” (Source: Publishers Weekly)
