Lost family and treasure. A girl hunts in the dark. All alone.

Twelve-year-old Gracie Stratis can’t stand her father’s tedious archeological digs. At an excavation in Scotland, she longs for something, anything, interesting to happen. And suddenly, adventure finds her. Someone has stolen the site’s prized Viking artifacts. The thieves add an extra dose of horror when they kidnap her four-year-old brother Russel. She finds herself all on her own. A kid learning about a cold world. Gracie sets off into the dark to return what’s been stolen and restore what she’s lost.
