Abstract:

In the heart of the Wimmera region of Victoria, an ancient gateway to Eden is kept hidden and safe by a creature so powerful that even the moon would obey her commands - at least it would if she had any idea that she wasn't just a normal girl about to finish high school. When a mining company begins exploratory sampling near Lainie's sheep farm, a family secret is revealed that makes her regret not having learnt more about her Indigenous heritage. What she's told by their farmhand, Harry - an Aboriginal elder - can't possibly be true, but then the most irritating guy in class, Bane, begins to act even more insanely toward her than ever, until she can no longer deny that something very unusual is going on. When Harry doesn't return from his quest to seek help to protect the area from the miners, Lainie sets out to discover the truth of her heritage, and of the secret she's been born to protect.
