It's been three years since Captain Pizzaro and his conquistadors began their occupation of the Inca empire. With their insatiable appetite for gold, and despite Pizzaro's attempts at peaceful, Christian stewardship, many men have begun burning villages that fail to produce the valuable metal.
Meanwhile, the Incas finally unite and prepare for war against their common enemy. Young Manco has reclaimed his rightful place as Emperor, and the beautiful, magical Anamaya is at his side. Yearning for peace, Anamaya's mysterious blue eyes still look to the spirit world for signs. She knows her beloved Gabriel, the Spanish soldier who bears the sacred puma's mark, will play an important role in the future of the Inca empire. But how can she convince Manco and his warriors that Gabriel is different, when they have sworn revenge against all the light-skinned Strangers?
The impending conflict will divide our heroes. But, at the critical moment, will Anamaya and Gabriel choose loyalty or love?
