Philip Jeffries is ready to go home. With federal funding for his research experiment gone, the Antarctic research season canceled, and a family waiting for him in Pasadena, it is time to depart the bottom of the Earth.

But a missing team of geologists starts him on a journey that begins in the Transantarctic Mountains and ends in a confrontation with legend and myth. An ancient power waits deep in the heart of the mountains, enraged by history, terrorized by Humanity, hidden from the World. What begins as a search-and-rescue mission becomes a desperate bid for survival and escape, lest the World behold once more the wonders that this power can work.
