Trapped on the exotic alien world of Typhon, their DNA forcibly altered by a strange (and often capricious) godlike entity, Dilani and her fellow colonists no longer know who or what they are. What they do know is that they are being stalked across the seas by the vicious Bone Killers, who are bent on their extinction. Their only hope for survival may lie with relics of a vanished past-- a past which still lies waiting, deep beneath the waves. But the past isn't all that awaits there. While a struggle for control erupts within the god itself, something vast and ancient is stirring in Typhon's secret depths. Something as strange and powerful as any deity. And the consequences of its coming will forever affect the lives of every creature living beneath the seas . . .
