TOSH CLOUDTREE is a nineteen-year-old art student living in the shadow of his overachieving brother. Tosh loves his brother enough to follow him 1000 miles to Seattle, but couldn't care less about politics or "native rights." Tosh is not a traditional Indian, preferring kung fu movies and comic books to Hopi ceremonials and pow wows, so when he starts having vision-like nightmares he doesn't know what to do except turn them into a series for art class. But Tosh discovers you can't keep a bad dream down. Peaceful intentions turn riot and Tosh's world crumbles at the end of a police baton. He compromises to save lives, while navigating the line between taking a stand and becoming a terrorist.
A vision leads him home to Hopi, where his grandfather and the elders agree: the prophesied time of cleansing is at hand. It's time to initiate a Totem to protect the Hopi . . . they just don't believe Tosh has what it takes. Which is just fine with Tosh. But when the spirits call Tosh and his friends, they have to answer.
Now if he can just convince his elders-while avoiding both militant Indians and corrupt FBI agents-he might actually survive long enough to realize his power, save his brother, and maybe even get the girl.
Kids today aren't like they used to be. No, they have incredible powers, and they intend to set the world right.
