Undine of Deadrise Bay
by Todd Woofenden.
From the Back Cover:
In the distant future, a girl passes the trials to become a Tallach fighter. Where did she come from? The powerful trade magnate of the Western Shores claims she’s his daughter, but there are others who know a different story, and suddenly the girl's past leaves her facing a new, powerful threat.
In the present, an old man runs for his life after seeking salvation by bringing down the men who hired his son to kill for them. But he can't escape his son’s past or the present of his young granddaughter, whom he abandoned by running away. Something unfinished is calling out to him.
