Deep in the Amazon, the solution to the global energy crisis has been found; a mysterious source of power set to end our dependency on oil.
When she receives stunning photographs related to the discovery – courtesy of expedition leader and former partner, Ed Reardon – entomologist Rebecca Riley finds herself on the next flight to Brazil, heading down to join the team of scientists assembling there. She hasn’t seen Ed for more than a year, and their relationship hadn’t ended well.
But his revelation is impossible to ignore.
What she and Ed uncover is beyond imagination: strange statues in the jungle… a ruined city built by the refugees of a lost Pacific continent… and a terrifying new species of animal.
Forced to confront a crippling childhood phobia she’d thought long dead and buried, Rebecca realises this new species is no ordinary enemy.
It is an ancient enemy, one whose very existence has implications for all of humankind… and the planet itself.
