In a high-tech, high-security world where bioterrorism threatens to cripple the ecosystem, magic is the last thing on anyone’s mind.

Something bad is happening to the world. Trees are dying. Cancer is on the rise and becoming more aggressive. When Kelsa’s father dies of the disease, science offers no answers.

Then, fifteen-year-old Kelsa meets the most beautiful boy she’s ever seen. But he’s also very strange. Claiming to be a mythological Raven, he goes on about magic, impending ecological disaster, and his need for Kelsa’s help to save the world.

Maybe he’s crazy. But what if he’s telling the truth?
