Ilona is an emergency room doctor, born into an ancient Hun tribe which still exists hidden amongst us with its strict and fiercely enforced rules. She doesn’t know much about her Hun heritage other than legends, customs, and rituals that she continues out of respect for her parents who died suddenly ten years ago. Her mother didn’t have a chance to explain her inherited powers, but after her twenty-ninth birthday, Ilona is considered as an adult by Hun standards and begins to remember forgotten instructions concealed as childhood rhymes. Ilona discovers that she can heal with her bare hands; she can rearrange the human body to its healthy state. This ability is exciting as well as frightening. She is conflicted between having confidence in her intelligence and inherited abilities while having no confidence as a woman. Her insecurity creates barriers which keep others out and her caged in. She’s in love with her unsuspecting best friend, but when a dashing stranger explodes into her life, the magnetic feelings frighten her. A dark, sinister man appears to be the connection to a series of mysterious deaths, and Ilona is now forced from her calm, steady life and is thrust into the unknown.
