The truth about her ancestry is not an easy thing for Dana to accept – she was deliberately created to perform a task, to find something that should stay hidden, or it might threaten the world of humans as Dana knows it. Her existence is tied to the myth of the Nephilim, the descendants of angels. Dana must prepare for a long search in ancient Egypt, hunted by creatures of darkness.

The roof of the cave was quite high where we were sitting, but the glow of the water lit it nevertheless. The waters created beautiful shimmering reflections on the rock. Further upstream, a small crack in the rock let a little daylight seep in to light the water. It was breathtakingly beautiful. Because of the light you could see to the bottom of the lake - the silver dust covered everything there, and shone light upwards, revealing even the smallest detail.
