'I am the blood that flows under all. . . I am the fire and bones of stars'In the colossal caldera of the Yellowstone National Park, a geyser blows in a startling eruption of red, and young Akshat disappears. This is only the tiny, terrifying start to the primal battle, now resurrected in full fury, between the two ancient foes, Elrai and the Edasich. As the frantic search for Akshat ensues, his cousins, the child-guardians entrusted with olden secrets, come together with a coven of witches to rescue their beloved Akshat-and indeed, the world-from certain peril. But will their growing powers be enough against the merciless evil let loose by the desperate and vicious Hyena-faced One? Will they be able to prevent a cataclysm of scorching lava and pulverized rock from reaching Earth?
