Excerpt from ‘Daniel Everhart and the Skylands of Caterra: Guarinot’
Filtered shadows pass overhead as another school of big eye trevally swim in waves, like ribbons in the breeze. The school scatters and a hammerhead cuts through the middle—right above my head. It spins and heads toward us.
My body jerks. I reach for my laser just as the shark’s tail brushes against Joost’s shoulder.
Joost falls sideways and bumps into me, and I lose my grip on the pistol. I swim after it, but the current sweeps it over the pyramid’s edge out of sight.
A shadow passes overhead again. I look up in time to see the shark make a circle and dive right at me.
I pull my arms up to block the shark’s mouth.
