First the skeptics scoffed at Global Warming. Then they drowned! Now, in a world covered almost entirely by water, mankind’s survival depends upon a planet-wide network of floating cities patrolled by the paramilitary Ocean Agency. For orphaned Maia Mizuki, a job with the O.A. would have been the ultimate way of staying afloat; but when she inexplicably fails the entrance exam, she quickly finds herself sinking into the inky depths of desperation! At the last minute, however, Maria is offered new employment with the Neriads, a not completely legal organization of hot-bodied young troubleshooters who take any job as long as the price is right! Unfortunately, the Neriads are fishing for dangerous prey and the task they’ve selected Maia for is the deadliest of all: Live Bait! Can Maia keep her head above water in a world where the most ruthless predators aren’t all in the ocean? Is this really the wisest career move? Find out as fools rush in where angels fear to tread water in DAPHNE IN THE BRILLIANT BLUE – Collection 1!
