Death waits in shadows as slavers make their way through
East Africa's Great Rift Valley. The warriors know what they want, so they
slaughter them and then climb the holy mountain to give thanks to their sun
god. The tribe awaits the warriors return.
It is now six centuries later, and a team led by archaeologists,
Allan Cline and Christopher Ward, is exploring caves in the very region.
Mesmerized by 50,000 year-old-artifacts, they stumble into a strange land.
There, an advanced civilization called the Ashais thrives. They protect a
strange bird, and world-changing secrets. The team gains knowledge of the
secrets. They have a compelling story to tell...truths that upend written history
and challenge beliefs about the very genesis of mankind. There is grave danger
to the Ashais, and the archaeologists are torn between the land they must
protect and new truths they must herald to the world. One of them is drawn to
the mysterious people. He embraces a beautiful woman and feels the weight of
centuries of betrayal and brutality that shatters lives. Greed and conflict
engulf the team. They play into the hands of the beautiful, but deadly Ashais.
Death waits in shadows.
"The Crystal Bird" is a unique and compelling story
of adventure, love, history and mythical magic. It provocatively probes
religion, and how different civilizations value life, culture, and the
discoveries they make.
