Have you ever had that odd feeling something was about to happen, and it did? Some people call that a ‘gift’.
Austin Cook has that gift. He doesn’t understand it and has tried to ignore it. As far back as he can remember, he and his family have visited his favorite uncle in Mountview, a small North Carolina town surrounded by a largely unexplored forest. For nature-loving Austin, it is an ideal place to explore the woods and learn about the forest animals that fascinate him. He loves all kinds of animals and, strangely, they have always been drawn to him. Austin has that ‘feeling’ that this trip will be much different than all the others, and it will.
He and his sister, Katy, will befriend a very special forest animal who has amazing powers. The three, using Austin’s incredible gift, will unlock hidden secrets that have been buried for centuries. But there are treacherous people who want to keep those secrets hidden.
Austin and Katy are vulnerable children visiting a deep and dangerous forest, and they will need to use all their powers and friendships to defend themselves if they are going to survive.
