In a war between the humans and the inhabitants of the sea — humans will lose. Xanthus Dimitriou— the most lethal Dagonian to rise from the ocean — is on a mission to save mankind from annihilation. But first there is one small thing he needs to do … kill a beautiful young woman in a wheelchair.
Killing her does not start out as part of his plan. He entrenches himself deep in the human world. Aligning with his enemies, he prepares to send them to Triton to face their punishment. Then Sara Taylor rolls onto the scene. Xanthus knows at once she is a criminal. And her crime? Being born. She is a human/Dagonian half-breed, an abomination. Killing her should be an easy job. All he has to do is break into her apartment, slit her throat, and feed her body to the sharks. Simple, right? Wrong. If only she were not so beautiful, so innocent, so sweet …
Saving the world may have to wait. It appears Xanthus has a woman to save. But protecting her may cost him his own life.

About The Author:
Holly is a mom who writes books in her spare time: translation — she hides in the bathroom with her laptop and locks the door while the kids destroy the house and smear peanut butter on the walls. She was born in Utah but lived in Kansas until she was 13, in Texas until she was 18, and attended college in Hawaii — studying marine biology. She is now back in Utah — “happy valley”. She is married to a wonderful husband, James, and they are currently raising six rambunctious children. Her interests are reading, writing (of course), martial arts, visual arts, creating Halloween props, and spending time with family.
