With the ever-changing sea as your home, you need constant patrol to keep your people safe. Daeksi is young, but she has guarded the waves long enough to know when something has gone wrong. The ocean speaks to her—in scent, flavor, and motion.
And the signs she sees now are unlike anything she has ever witnessed. The waters taste of iron and blood, and even her dolphin patrol-mate, Bree, can sense that something is horribly wrong. Intruders—armored monsters calling themselves coldmen—have threatened Seaclan territory, and Daeksi must stop them at all costs. Will she find the strength to confront these powerful new enemies? Or will she fall beneath their uncaring claws?
