A huge, glowing object moved slowly toward her. As it approached, the glow grew more intense and the water warmer. Vanessa stopped swimming, waiting for the inevitable…

Vanessa’s dreams are haunted by cryptids—mysterious creatures that may or may not exist. Her mother used to study them, gathering scientific evidence that at least some of them are real. Vanessa longs to continue her mother’s research. At the moment, though, she also has more pressing concerns—like a family trip that includes her father’s new girlfriend.

But the visit to Scotland gives Vanessa a chance to explore the eerie secrets of Loch Ness. With the help of her mother’s cryptid files, can she solve the mystery of the most famous cryptid of all?

“Vanessa’s story is one of two worlds—the real world and the world of folktale and mythology—across which she must manage bravely but, for the most part, secretly.” —VOYA
