the Before...

Fifteen-year-old Brigid Brigid knew she shouldn’t be sneaking aboard a ship without permission or worse, without payment, but when her father tried to marry her off to a man thrice her age, she had no choice but to escape.

Just when she thinks she’s safe, she's discovered by the crew. The superstitious captain deems her presence bad luck, he orders Brigid tossed overboard. Her fate seems sealed… until the sea decides that Brigid would not die today.

Transformed into a syren and given new life, Brigid now has the power to seek revenge on those who wronged her. But nothing in Brigid’s life has been easy, and why should now be any different?
