Sarah Muller has tried to live a normal life with Thraxsis and their son, but she is tormented by unanswered questions about her life and identity: Who were her biological parents? Why did they give her up? Who were the Mullers and what were they doing? Pursuing answers is harder than she expected it to be, almost as if someone is blocking her inquiries. When she finally does get a “last known” location for her adoptive father, she makes a plan to find him and confront him, never knowing where that search will lead, or what impact it will have on her life, and her family.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the planet, Rebecca Anderson continues her research to expose the truths behind cultural myths. While working down in South Africa, Rebecca read about an expedition in the Southwestern Aegean Sea that has unearthed an ancient crystal—a relic hidden under the waves for millennia. There, she makes a discovery that hints at this mysterious relic’s role in an inconceivable evil waiting to be unleashed. She knows that she has to act quickly, but who will believe her? When Rebecca recruits help from her friends, she reaches out to Sarah and Thraxsis as she tries to stop this impending doom, but she has no idea of the forces that are moving with them and against them. An ancient enemy has already returned and is coming for them all.
