When employees of the Green Creek Coal Company detonate an explosion to strip-mine Kanawha Mountain, the blast triggers a series of unexplained—possibly supernatural—events in the rural hills of West Virginia. Blue Avalon, an elite team of civilian and U.S. military personnel formed to investigate Unidentified Flying Objects and other unexplained phenomena, is activated to investigate whether an intelligent entity or force is responsible for “the Kanawha Anomaly.”
The Blue Avalon team is assisted by three civilian consultants: Shawnee Native American tribal members Leon Great Eagle and Ben “Dancing Bear” Grayson; also, Sarah Muller, a young Georgetown graduate who has a special connection with the entity. The team must work against the clock to determine whether the Anomaly is benevolent or constitutes a direct threat to all of mankind.
