Five hundred years ago, a group of Spanish conquistadors searching for gold, led by a young and brilliant commander named Simon de Oliveras y Seixas, lands in the New World. What they find is a treasure far more valuable: the Fountain of Youth. The Spaniards slaughter the Water Clan of the Uzita, the Native American tribe that guards the precious liquid that will keep the conquistadors young for centuries. But Shako, the chief s fierce and beautiful daughter, escapes and swears to avenge her people a blood oath that spans more than five centuries.
When the source of the fountain is destroyed in our own time, the loss threatens Simon Oliver and his men, and the powerful, shadowy empire of wealth and influence they have built. They turn to David Robinton, a scientific prodigy who believes he is on the verge of the greatest medical breakthrough of all time. But when David makes a horrifying discovery about his employers and the mysterious and exotic woman he loves, he must decide: Is he a pawn in a game of immortals . . . or will he be its only winner?
A compelling plot, memorable characters, top-notch action scenes, and heart-stopping twists . . . you won t want to stop reading this until the very last page. Boyd Morrison, author of The Ark and Piranha (with Clive Cussler)"e;
