Jenny is no stranger to magic -- she is a child of covert organizations that specialize in the arcane and mysterious: shape-shifters, magic-makers, psychics, and monsters out of legend. And yet, she is utterly ordinary, one of the few members of her family without any "gift" to speak of. Except for one thing. A secret she has carried from childhood: an encounter with an extraordinary boy, born from the sea. And so begins a lifelong obsession, a love affair with the ocean -- and a search for that magical boy she lost so many years before. Until, she finds him and discovers that together they must save the world ... or drown with it.
