After uncovering a mystical link to the ancient civilization of Galderkhaan, child psychologist Caitlin O'Hara is left with strange new powers. Suddenly she can heal her young patients with her mind and see things from other places and other times. But as she learns more about her powers, she also realizes that someone is watching her, perhaps hunting her--and using her son to do it.
Meanwhile Mikel Jasso, a field agent for a mysterious research organization, is searching for Galderkhaani ruins in Antarctica. After falling down a crevasse, he discovers the entire city has been preserved under ice and that the mysterious stone artifacts he's been collecting are not as primitive as he thought. As Mikel and Caitlin work to uncover the mysteries of the Galderkhaani, they realize that the person hunting Caitlin and the stones may be connected in ways they never knew possible.
"Fans of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child will find a lot to like" (Publishers Weekly) in the Earthend Saga, and this latest adventure is sure to leave you gasping for breath as Caitlin races against time to save what's dearest to her heart.

In the cryptic prologue of Anderson and Rovins sequel to 2014s A Vision of Fire, members of the alien Galderkhaani race, flying on a gondola attached to a balloon made of inflated hortatur skin, crash into the sea. Meanwhile in the Antarctic, a bright yellow flame jumps off the ice onto an electrical engineer, who sees something strange in the sky before the fire consumes her. The significance of these events soon becomes clear. In New York City, psychiatrist Caitlin OHara has visions of the civilization of Galderkhann, a world of strange sights, strange beings, and strange philosophies. Her access to those images coincides with a series of unusual phenomena that fans of Andersons performance in TVs X-Files will appreciate: possessed teenagers in different parts of the world, a mass suicide of pigeons, a motorboat attacked by a dolphin. Even Caitlins 10-year-old son is affected, making her search for the truth even more urgent. The conclusion sets up the next book nicely. Agent: Doug Grad, Doug Grad Literary Agency. (Dec.)
