Elijah Raven, 22, possesses an extraordinary gift—or to him—a curse. He’s simply trying to overcome his past and get by in life. He’s not a thrill-seeking daredevil. Instead, he works at Buy City. His passion is for computers, a relatively safe endeavor. Not adventure.
But, animals won’t grant his desire for peace. They communicate with him. He doesn’t know how it works, but animals sense that he can understand them. That sounds cool, except the animals don’t tell him good things. They tell him about the evil things they see. Abuse. Rape. Murder. He wants to mind his own business and reject diving headfirst into unknown dangers against his will. Instead, he’s compelled to get involved.
The call screams when he stumbles upon the abduction of children forced into prostitution by untouchable Corporate Executives, who believe anything that makes money is permissible.
