We begin in a time before our own, when the race of humans were young, and desperately in need of assistance. The Great Northern Fortress was conceived and constructed under the watchful eyes of the Gods. Its primary function, to save as many humans as possible from the known periodic convulsions of an adolescent planet.
An unprecedented discovery concerning the little known Olmec civilization has taken place, and the untimely death of a beloved Professor sends a newly schooled intern, Taylor Rae, into overdrive in her quest for answers.
Well-financed by her father, Russell Rea, and not trusting of a newly appointed Mentor, Professor Teller, our hero quietly assembles a small team of students and associates on a trek deep into the jungles of South America, to confirm a message thousands of years old. Taylor Rae, finds herself to be at the very forefront of a grand adventure, which quickly turns sour when her father is informed of devious goings-on within the walls of his daughters beloved college.
Information about her discovery is compromised, and the greed of an underground European syndicate has been let loose in the pursuit of taking a treasure for itself. The stage is set, and the die cast. Taylor, and her ingenious brother James, join forces to save themselves and the lives of their friends, in one final desperate confrontation that will decide the fate of the once Great Northern Fortress, and perhaps the future fate of mankind as well.
