A Navy SEAL with special powers over water joins forces with a magical thunderbird-shifter to defeat an ancient evil, finding unexpected love in the middle of the tempest.
Traumatized by his last mission in a far off land, Navy SEAL Jim Morrow goes to Grizzly Cove to heal and help defeat a sea monster that’s been plaguing the little town full of bear-shifters, refugee mermaids, and Others. Otherworldly and evil, the leviathan has called up an army of smaller creatures from Earth’s oceans to help it get to the magical people it wants so badly to defile. It feeds on magic, and the town of Grizzly Cove is a tasty treat it wants to devour.
Tilly follows her heart and her shifter soul to a place on the Washington coastline she senses needs her special help. She is a thunderbird. A special kind of legendary shifter that does one job, and does it very well. Thunderbirds are harbingers of storms that can wield lightning and fight underwater evil to protect those on land. She is called to Grizzly Cove by the terrible army that has gathered just offshore, though she knows nothing of the bear-shifter settlement or its troubles until she gets there.
When Jim and Tilly meet, they immediately strike sparks off each other. She brings him to life when he thought the light of his spirit had been forever doused. She finds in Jim a wondrous elemental power that compliments her own native skillset. Together, they will fight the leviathan and its servants to the best of their abilities, but will it be enough? And, will they be able to find a way forward as a couple when they come from such different backgrounds?
