When the Water Burns

H3T, LLC

 Tomas Salazar sailed into Key West on his charter boat, only intending to stay for a week or two. Then he met the beautiful and talented Kyla singing at the Parrot Dice Bar and Grill and stayed for five years, taking charters to make ends meet and hoping Kyla would eventually return his affection. Kyla appears to be a woman in her mid-twenties, but is actually an eternal elemental water spirit called an Ondine. Her kind were the truth behind legends like mermaids and the Sirens of Greek myth, which makes playing music in a beach side bar the perfect cover. When Veto Quesada comes into the bar, Tomas immediately recognizes the danger he represents. To earn the money to buy his boat, Tomas smuggled for the cartels and only ever feared the dead-eyed enforcers who killed for money. Tomas warns Kyla off when she becomes fascinated with a human seemingly immune to the power of her voice. When her fascination draws Veto's attention, she must risk everything to save her only human friend.

DAY ONE: THE NAME OF THE WIND
 
My name is Kvothe.
 
I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep.
 
You may have heard of me.
 
So begins a tale unequaled in fantasy literature—the story of a hero told in his own voice. It is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man’s search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.
