Strange, sinister black birds seem to follow Teya wherever she goes. And then there’s the mysterious, black haired boy – does he mean her harm, or is he the key to putting her broken pieces back together?
The closer Teya moves towards the mystical mountains of her ancestors and the ruined city of Machu Picchu, the stranger things become. Is there some magnetic force that distorts reality, or is it simply delirium, caused by the effects of altitude? But when she is forced into a savage world where darkness and despair threaten at every turn, and ancient, malicious forces seem to have some secret plan for her, Teya must find the strength to fight, to stop the horror that will change the course of history forever.
