About the Book: The first in a series of family adventures packed with thrills, science and fantasy. Sara Tsvetkov is not a typical 11 year old girl, and her mom and dad are not the typical run-of-the-mill parents in modern suburbia. They lead a team dedicated to saving and protecting animals, and discovering how to use nature to find cures for many deadly diseases that ravage mankind. Added in is the Tsvetkov's quest to save the world's endangered animals and bring once-extinct species back to life using recovered DNA and cutting-edge cloning techniques. A diary and medallion given to Sara's mother Marina by her grandmother compels them to make a startling discovery in Peru. It solidifies belief in the power of her legacy and the importance of working with nature to solve many of the problems faced by mankind. This discovery, and Marina's work with and love of snakes, lead Sara's father to exploring the use of natural venoms in the development of cancer-fighting medicines. That secret research into a cancer cure draws the unwanted interest of others. All want to steal the research and its byproduct, a fast-acting super-toxin with no antidote that makes its victims appear to have died by snakebite. The truth about Sara's family and their work is revealed as we find that their secret facility concealed inside a South American mountain hides far more than anyone can imagine.
