On another world, pirates sail the seas and plunder the ships of the Royals. Lowly-born men, 'Fivers' as they are known, have no hope of achieving any status in the First Realm, and yet their women will invariably find themselves serving men of higher rank. For the Fivers, piracy may seem an attractive option.
A girl from Earth is thrown into this world, together with her former employer, a young woman who, for the moment at least, is also her companion. They have no idea what is happening to them, marooned on a sandbar in the middle of the ocean, under a sky with two moons and being watched by mermaids. It seems like a dream, but their hunger and thirst is all too real.
And then the pirates arrive.
But on this strange world, all is not as it might seem. The pirates may not be as ferocious as they appear, their weapons not as deadly as they look, the mermaids not real mermaids, and the true controllers of life on that planet not, in fact, the Royals of the First Realm. More worrying for everyone is that the seas are rising and likely soon to submerge all the inhabited land, and yet it might just be that the girls from Earth are not as helpless as they seem either.
