A science fantasy set in and dedicated to Victoria's Otway Ranges and wild southern coast, and to its bird life.
Gondwana was the ancient southern supercontinent. As it disintegrated millions of years ago, the final great schism came when Australia broke away, along its southern rim, from East Antarctica. As Antarctica died beneath the ice, the Australian ark drifted north into the heat.
The forces unleashed by this cataclysm remain to disturb the life of Lane, an amateur scientist. He begins an ambitious study of birdlife based around an old farmhouse in the Otway Ranges.
Deep in the rain-soaked forest he finds a dangerous mystery. There is a lethal presence somewhere in the very air around him, and a peculiar hidden valley.
He meets Katrina, an obsessed recluse who is performing strange experiments with birdsong. His fascination with her leads him and his friends into a mythic realm that threatens to destroy them all.
