The prophetess Zyla is used to the elders of her clan on the mountain of Eden scorning her strange glimpses into the future, and bitter that she doesn’t receive the honor she believes she deserves. When her forecast of a devastating flood gets her exiled, she and her sister Adah flee the holy heights to live in the desert among descendants of the murderer Cain. Fueled by her craving for recognition as a seer, Zyla will do anything to advance her status, even if it means stealing her sister's prominent husband or aligning with unknown spiritual powers.
When the flood Zyla prophesied slams into Cain's desolate outpost, Zyla must decide what is worth risking love and death for. Will this headstrong kinswoman of Adam and Eve be strong enough to find hope on the other side of the waters, or will the devastation sweep her and her prophecies away forever?
