Water can heal or destroy.
Abandoned by water and washed ashore in a village, Elle is determined to return to the university to resume her studies, wanting nothing more than to escape her homeland. She has never felt a part of Doma and her time away has only confirmed that she was meant for more than she could have by staying. An attack on the village leads Elle to discover a greater connection to water and a bond she never believed possible. She must first understand and then strengthen her bond to the water elemental to survive and learns that bond might be all that prevents Doma from falling. Shape of Water consists of three novellas previously published separately and follows the events of Bound by Fire in The Cloud Warrior Saga, but can be read and enjoyed separately.
