Shadow of the Thunderbird (Cryptids Trilogy, Book 1)

Product description

For the past 160 years, giant birds have been reported in the skies above the Black Forest region of northern Pennsylvania. Now, it's up to one man and one woman, to find out where they came from, and where they've gone. Failed Ph.D. candidate and assistant museum curator Ian McQuade is rescued by cartographer Alma Del Nephites, after an ill-fated expedition into the Amazon Basin. They travel to meet the enigmatic CEO of a secretive organization, where the two are given the opportunity to seek out proof of the existence of thunderbirds. A madman's journal will lead them into the heart of a 700 year-old mystery, where cutting edge technology designed to locate and identify such creatures will collide with an ancient power that has hidden and protected them for centuries. Ian must face his past, in order to believe in a future that couldn't possibly exist. With lightning in their eyes and thunder in their wings, who will control the fate and destiny of the thunderbirds?

About the Author

Dallas Tanner was born in 1956, at the stroke of midnight during the worst storm of the century to that date, in the seacoast township of North Kingston, Rhode Island. The eldest child of a career naval officer, he attended 9 schools in 12 years, as they moved about the country. His interest in local myths, legends and all things paranormal grew out of the ever-changing diversity of his upbringing. His first novel, "Shadow of the Thunderbird", was required reading at a large technical college in South Carolina. He has frequently lectured, appeared on or hosted radio shows, and presented at conferences on his books and interest in cryptozoology. He is often cited in the media as an expert on unknown or unexpected animals. He was instrumental in salvaging Dan Taylor's Nessie chaser mini subs, the Viperfish and the Nessa II, and is currently pursuing an interest in fossil diving. When he isn't exploring remote locations such as the Altamaha River, Mt. St. Helens or Loch Ness, Tanner is content to write novels in his home study under the watchful eye of his longhair Tabby, Samwise. He now lives in Greenville, SC with his wife Carla and their five children, where he is at work on his latest project.
