Rachel and Theo are twins. Apart from having red hair, there’s nothing remarkable about them. Except their psychic powers. These are soon enlisted by Jones, a wise alien out to save the universe from the Wilberforces, a race of giant creatures waking from a spellbound sleep beneath Auckland’s extinct volcanoes, whose sole goal is planetary destruction. Will Rachel and Theo learn to use their powers and overcome the pain it causes them before the Wilberforces wake up properly to destroy Auckland, and then the world?
