The beating heart of the Earth, superpowers, portals, tidal waves, ice kingdoms, hidden caverns, ancient clans, futuristic tech, mythical gems, plants that communicate, lab-made mutants, and part-human species - some very unfriendly. Can an average teen become a superhero in Gaia, the dimension of the living Earth?
Empowered by their new superpowers the Avatars of Gaia set out to conquer an evil king who wants to destroy Gaia, the spiritual realm of Earth's beating heart. With help from Samoa, Gaia's legendary guardian, Daisy and her summer campers embark on a mission to rescue Gaia's princess, protect the 'plantizens' and animals in Gaia, and its pristine ecosystems that are under attack by the king's destruction of pure water, seeds, trees, and sunshine that are required for life to thrive. An incredible adventure is about to begin!
As the Avatars explore new worlds they realize that there has been a dimension breach. The Avatars must quickly act to halt the spread of a deluge of Earth's synthetic materials before Gaia is irreversibly harmed, an imbalance that could shake the planetary core. The destiny of Earth and Gaia is intertwined. Will they join forces?
The fate of all life forms in Gaia and on Earth depends on an average girl who calls upon her inner courage and perseverance to become a heroine. That leader is - Ranger Daisy Heart, an Avatar of Gaia.
Besides battling bizarre creatures and protecting a rare gem, Daisy must also solve the code of the curious Prism that holds the secret to the mysteries of the universe. Such knowledge is forbidden to humans! But will a part-human Gaian help her decipher it? He is lonely, believes Daisy is honorable, and that as friends they could better their worlds by strengthening the human spirit.
