All Hannah Darson wanted was a peaceful summer vacation after her first year of teaching in high school. She and her brother Ben are all set up for six weeks of relaxation in their mom's log cabin next to Lake Powell. Hannah hasn't been there for years, and when she runs into Ben's best friend Josh again, she discovers he has grown up... fast. The young boy from the Navajo reservation turns out to be the local heart-throb, and Hannah falls head over heels for him.
But vacation in Arizona is not a bed of roses: after being stranded and harassed at Lake Powell in the evening, Hannah is plagued by terrifying dreams about war, a Navajo village from the past, and three mysterious shapeshifters who are haunting her in her nightmares and even seem to invade the real world.
What is happening to her? And why does Josh appear in her dreams about the past, too..?
