“Why do you want a scary owl?” Sage asked slowly, her eyes fixed on the bird with a mesmerizing stare.
“Eh? Well…hmmm. I guess you never know when a scary owl will come in handy.”
“Handy for what?”
“Why, handy for any situation where a scary owl could be of use.”

An after-school job in the extraordinary collection of a peculiar Antiquarian takes a startling turn for Carlos and Sage. In a terrifying moment, they become part of the history surrounding them. It is 1692 and the stakes are high, very high, as a conquering army’s march threatens to bring genocide to an ancient people and their culture. Can Carlos, riding as the Captain General’s aide, and Sage, the granddaughter of a Tewa Indian leader, forestall a massacre and bring about peace and religious tolerance?
