At a remote Mesoamerican site, a carving of the fabled deity Quetzalcoatl awakens from the stones of a pyramid. There is one person present to witness this-Martha, who has come in search of ancient wisdom for a new age. Her studies with a jaguar shaman have not prepared her for what to do, and as her fellow students at the Ancient Wisdom School wait for her return, they are faced with unsettling developments of their own. Each of them holds a piece of the puzzle, but how all the pieces will fit together is a mystery. All that is known is what the prophecies say: when Quetzalcoatl returns, it is to dream a new earth into being.
