Maat-su, daughter of the gods. Object of beauty & power brought to Earth to watch over the human race. Lusted after for tens of thousands of years by those who sought to use her for their own dark purposes.
Maat-su, the lapis lazuli skull, created on a world far from our own. Present at the birth of the first great civilisation of Atlantis, rescued at its fall and carried half way across the world to guide the emergence of a second. One whose legacy strikes wonder into hearts even today.
Far in the future, in 2013, Gemma Mason returns home to England after an abortive expedition through the deserts of Arizona in search of the blue obsidian skull, Gal-Athiel. Wanting only to return to her quiet life, Gemma soon realises this is not to be. After a series of murders, break-ins, and a disturbing encounter with a sinister stranger it becomes clear that someone else is looking for the skulls. Someone who is prepared to stop at nothing to get to them first.
Will Gemma be their next target?
