Yet, once she meets a mysterious guy named Nickk, everything changes: Nickk turns out to be a guest from a far-away Galaxy. However, Nickk is not the only alien on Earth. There are others, who are looking for something special and valuable here. Why do Anya and Nickk feel such a strange bond between each other? Why have they seen each other in their dreams? Why someone is following Anya, and what do they want from her? Has it anything to do with the papers that her father has left, before heading out to an archeological expedition?
