Mahri, a water-rat Wildling, kidnaps a Healer from the Rulers' city in order to stop a fever from ravishing her village. And in a harrowing journey home by boat across vast swamplands, Mahri discovers the special connection that she and the Healer, Prince Korl, share.

A Seer decrees that Mahri may be
the only one to help this man unite
the kingdom in peace, but there are many obstacles to overcome. Ultimately, Mahri's own test lies in her struggle
to accept her special power and turn
it into a productive force for her world.

Beneath the Thirteen Moons abounds with sea creatures, think-talkers and other such phenomena. The love angle between Prince Korl and Mahri is slow to develop, but the
curious liquid land in which they live
is a unique and captivating setting.

The plot also unfolds in a compelling
manner, and Mahri, with all her strength and tenacity, is an endearing heroine.
