Not the Chosen One
YA Caribbean-Inspired High Fantasy
When Zane Blacktip was bitten by the shark God her family takes their name after, she’s marked by more than a bite. It’s considered a rejection by the Gods. Her dreams of being a jewelry maker mean nothing because who would purchase goods from a cursed girl? But when her Moko Jumbie prophetess friend tells a lie to the Crown Prince Bakari, Zane has an opportunity to take advantage of the fib.

But to be clear, she is absolutely NOT the chosen one.
