If Umira can't stop the megalodon, it might devour everything in the Blue Kingdoms.
"The creature was huge, shaped like a great white but easily three times as large as the biggest shark Umira had ever seen. The monster’s saucer-sized black eye focused hungrily on her, and its maw yawned wide, showing row upon row of terrible serrated teeth. It came at her from below, jaws gaping. Though it could swallow her whole, Umira doubted the beast would do her that favor."
Umira, an outcast triton starwatcher, has no desire to become a hero. Accursed and shunned from birth, she's more at home amid a school of sharks than among human beings or her own people. She prefers to be alone, rather than continuing a lifetime filled with rejection and fear. But when a ship of treasure hunters starts mining the ocean with depth charges, Umira has no choice but to intervene. Her confrontation with the surface people begins a series of events that releases a megalodon into the World-Sea. Now Umira and the crew must fight for their lives or perish in the jaws of the monster shark.
"Monster Shark" is a thrilling undersea sword & sorcery adventure packed with magic, monsters, grisly deaths, and -- of course -- ravening sharks. It features Umira the Accursed from The Tournament of Death, the FREE online novel. This story stands on its own and is original to e-book format.
