Lately, seventh grader Nizhoni Begay has been able to detect monsters, like that man who was in the bleachers at her basketball game. Turns out he's Mr. Charles, her dad's new boss, and he's alarmingly interested in Nizhoni and her brother, Mac. Nizhoni knows he's a threat, but her father won't believe her. When Dad disappears the next day, leaving behind a message that says "Run!", the siblings and Nizhoni's best friend, Davery, are thrust into a rescue mission. If Nizhoni, Mac, and Davery can reach the House of the Sun, they will be outfitted with what they need to defeat the ancient monsters Mr. Charles has unleashed. But it will take more than weapons for Nizhoni to become the hero she was destined to be.
