The magnificent Kelpies who haunt the waters, shape-shifting from horse to human, are disappearing into legend. Their numbers are dwindling, and they must take a human sacrifice twice a year to survive. So when Rez, a Kelpie stallion and former navy officer, spots a desperate man about to offer himself to the waves, Rez marks him for sacrifice.
The most talented diver the navy had ever seen, Benjamin D'Arcy has always lived on the edge of death; he's a crazy kind of brave. But now he's blind and broken, his last sight that of his best friend, Rez, blown apart by shrapnel. All Benjamin wants is to join him in death.
Too late, Rez discovers that the man he so hastily marked is Benjamin—the man he loves, the man he's crossed oceans to find. Overwhelming joy is tempered by the knowledge that their reunion must be short—the mark of sacrifice has set Benjamin's path. Facing a near-impossible obstacle, Rez must find a way to overcome the mark's power and prove to Benjamin that theirs is a love worth fighting—and living—for.
