A downtrodden thirteen-year-old befriends an ancient unearthly being.

After their single parent mother dies, thirteen-year-old Aubrey and his younger sister  are sent to live with their estranged grandmother on the Oregon coast. She’s an overly protective woman who lives life with a rule book.   Aubrey feels like he’s a prisoner until one day he hears a voice in his mind, not his own. At first terrified, Aubrey soon comes to grip with the fact that he’s telepathically connected to someone. Deciding to follow the voice’s instructions, he heads out to a remote seaside cave where he stumbles into a glowing angel, of sorts. Her name is Ko. She’s coy. Twelve feet long, and over two thousand years old.

Ko tells Aubrey that he’s the first human to ever listen to her and as new  “besties” she wants to show him a  world far beneath the sea floor. She says she’ll keep him safe and teach him how to master his sixth sense. In exchange, she wants to know Human. But he must keep it a secret.

But how could Aubrey know that there’s an age-old secret society hunting Ko and have been for generations. These people will stop at nothing, murder included, to keep the world from knowing who Ko really is and what she’s capable of? And how could he know that they are already watching him?
