When Sierra Carter, out-of- work PR executive, receives a call from Quetzalcoatl, the plumed serpent god of the Aztecs, she suddenly has more problems on her plate than unemployment. Saving the whole planet, for example.
Sierra discovers that her former firm’s employer’s semiconductors are in reality a means of spreading a deadly evil around the world. Necocyaotl, Aztec god of death and destruction, has placed his essence in every device, causing people to place their self-interest and selfish desires above all else. Sierra is called upon to stop him.
With his request, Quetzalcoatl offers strange and gifted assistants, Coyotl the trickster, otherwise known as Chaco, a handsome shape-shifting avatar; and Fred, a diminutive and mischievous mannegishi. Although Sierra is sceptical, the revelation of a previously unknown world and its attendants is undeniable. As is the peril Necocyaotl’s return to power promises. Entering the fray with avatars and mythological creatures alongside her, Sierra will discover there are incalculable wonders (and dangers) within the new Old World. Her own hidden talents may find their way to the surface, too.
