Dark Waters a shapeshifter story, but this is no urban shifter - he is an each-uishe, a waterhorse of the Scottish lochs, and a very dangerous creature.
I cannot wait to see what Reese Dante and her Art Team will come up with for him!

Needless to say, I have images in my head, and a friend recently sent me a link to the CRWR art site where I found this amazing picture.
Visit the CRWR site HERE and browse their wonderful art, because they have the perfect picture of my waterhorse. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find a picture of his manshape, but I have every faith in Silver's artists. They'll create him, I'm certain.
Flein is a wanderer by instinct and need, roaming the known world as the fancy takes him. In the Highland village of Glenfinnan, women have been raped and brutally murdered. The killer is a waterhorse, a monstrous shapeshifter by all accounts. But when Flein meets Donnchadh, first in its equine form, then its man-shape, he knows the waterhorse is innocent. Flein is drawn to the shapeshifter, but he finds it difficult to acknowledge it's more than a monster.
Donnchadh, though wary, shares the same attraction. They join forces to hunt for the real murderer, but time is short. They must find the killer before more women die. Then suspicion is turned on them and the hunters become the hunted.
