Incredible sightings and events, all revolving around the sea, begin to pour in from all over the world. It would appear that there is a strange, powerful new type of sea creature appearing all over the globe. Oceanographers all over are studying this new creature. These oceanographers and researchers include Laura Daughtery, David Lee, a Pentagon official and Dr. Aleksander Cirko, a government scientist. Richard Connelly, an insurance salesman, is also interested in the creatures, and his interest leads him to Laura.

Meanwhile, a young boy, Miles, discovers an odd egg near the ocean, and, excited, decides to care from it and wait for it to hatch.
