Salt of My Blood by Jae Mazer
Lærke is a gentle soul whose heart belongs to the sea.
Born in the town of Ringkøbing, Denmark, Lærke spends her days breathing ocean air, dipping her toes in the frigid waters of the North Sea, and dreaming of life beneath the waves. And from the dark, deep waters, a friend emerges, one that Lærke holds more dear than anything in the world.
Harald is a hateful, greedy boy with a craving for pain. He grows up to be a loathsome pirate who sails the North Sea, leaving waves of suffering in his wake. But when he crosses paths with Lærke, his world becomes a torrent of unfathomable horror.
THE SALT OF MY BLOOD is a novella filled with love and loss, pleasure and pain, creatures and pirates, and the violent squall when all collide.
