Teenage twins Lynx and Laurel Raven are on a mission. After being told by their grandmother that a family heirloom is missing, the twins head to their uncle's house on the Gulf of Finland for a two-week stay, hoping to find the valuable stone tablet that their uncle supposedly snatched from her house. But when their cousin's eccentric tutor gives Laurel a strange book to read and their aunt reveals that their ancestors were shamans, their search takes on a new sense of urgency.
The twins quickly locate the tablet in their uncle's office and manage to solve an ancient Finnish puzzle-which activates dormant technology and transports Laurel to Nodyynia, a world at war. As she struggles to survive, Lynx sets off to find her with the help of a guardian shaman who is convinced Lynx is a prophet destined to destroy a dark shaman poised to awaken from a lengthy sleep stasis and seek revenge.
In this spellbinding fantasy, as the guardians prepare for an invasion, a portal begins to open; it is up to Lynx to do whatever it takes to find his sister and stop an evil shaman before he destroys the universe.
