Cal and Lili share a passion for Native American lore and an innate connection to birds. But there is escape from the cycle of death. And when Cal's sister, Rachel is mauled, Lili begins to question what is real. Who or what killed Rachel Green? And why?

Igring friends' warnings about interfering with ancient rituals, Lili chooses to walk into the fire, unwittingly jeopardizing her sanity to learn the truth.
