From back of book: Kel Boon was once an agent of the land's most secret organization, tracking and eliminating the Strangers from beyond Noreela. But then one horrifying encounter left his superior officer--and lover--dead, along with many innocents. Kel has been running ever since, hiding out as a simple wood-carver in the fishing village of Pavmouth Breaks. But when a mysterious island appears during a cataclysmic storm, sending tidal waves to smash the village, his training tells him to expect the worst. How can he warn the surviving villagers that the visitor may not be the peace-loving pilgrims they claim to be? That this might be the invasion he has long feared...and that he may be Noreela's last chance?
