Randi Braveheart and her friend go to the Mineral Creek mining claim for summer vacation and to visit her father, Will, during the second half of the six month mining season. The time of happy reunions, summer fun, and gold mining come to a close after a night of sabotage, the theft of the first half of the season’s haul, and a death threat.
Will the motley crew of miners and teens survive until the end of the season?
Years ago, Kyle’s parents fled Denver to live a life without governmental oversight in a small Colorado town. An athletic stand-out, Kyle has always thought there was nothing more in Ouray than hot springs for the tourists and basketball for him—his ticket for a way out and a bigger and better life. But when an old miner tells him about a room hidden within the caverns of an abandoned gold mine, Kyle is determined to see what he can find. What he discovers shocks him to the core: the identification for every US citizen, documenting their DNA and the face they should have been born with. In over his head, Kyle goes to the one person who might be able to help. A loner and a computer genius, Billy quickly figures out what the government has kept from everyone for decades. And it’s a secret that might get them both killed.

The childhood secret of a troubled teen warrior is used against her by her enemies. It turns out what Neiko imagined is real, and she becomes trapped in the same world she imagined by an otherworldly evil that is worse than the devil. Getting home is the least of her problems.
The Indians and the Crackedskulls are locked in the turmoil of a war that has raged for centuries, and it is presently in a stalemate. Her enemies, Raven and Bloodhawk, have come up with a scheme to take her down, but in doing so they inadvertently open the door to another universe and to an otherwordly evil. Neiko later finds out that a land she thought she had only imagined is actually real and the dark being is not a figment of her childhood imagination–he is terrifyingly real and she faces him for the first time. To make matters worse, it is now in her world and he has evil plans especially for her.

Can she come back home and turn the tables on her enemies?
