A Plane Crash... A Hidden Valley... A Mysterious Civilization... An Ancient Prophecy... A Cataclysmic Scheme... Five Unlikely Heroes
Over a remote northern forest, a small plane carrying five teenage friends - Jag, Mariah, Kody, Tegan and Aari - flies into a freak storm. Struck by lightning, the aircraft crashes and the passengers find themselves cast into a life-changing adventure.
In a hidden valley, a mysterious people gaze at the stormy sky as a glowing object with fiery wings disappears behind a mountain ridge. The astonishing sight reignites an ancient prophecy foretelling the arrival of five chosen ones destined to become bearers of light against a dark storm gathering on humanity's horizon.
In a distant city, a secretive organization led by a shadowy figure initiates a sequence of cataclysmic events designed to wreak havoc across the planet, beginning with a remote mining site in northern Canada.
As the three worlds collide, unlikely heroes arise. Armed with powers entrusted to them by the ancient prophecy and the resilience of their life-long bond, the five teens take a stand against a malevolent foe.

"As a fantasy fiction writer I have to admit that I am a harsher critic when it comes to novels in this genre.

It is truly a classic in the making!" ~ Michael Beas - Bestselling Author of 'Strump' ~
