Want to check in at the Red Coyote Inn? You may want to know about its questionable past including ghosts, sightings of supernatural creatures, and guests encountering bizarre accidents. This charming inn is nestled in the Sonoran Desert on the Apache Trail close to the foreboding Superstition Mountains, which are said to be the home of the legendary Lost Dutchman Mine. Some say the reason for all the paranormal activity is an energy vortex that has ties to the mine and the inn, and some of the guests who come to stay there are as strange as the inn itself.
Dean Banks has moved with his family into the inn they inherited from their grandpa.He soon learns that he has also inherited a Supernatural Gift of Power from a long-ago Apache ancestor. Destined to be the Guardian of the mine, he feels this is more of a curse than a gift. He is troubled with superhuman strength and the ability to transform himself into another creature. Looking for answers, and afraid he might hurt someone, he befriends a mysterious old miner who has a secret of his own.
Join Dean’s adventure as he encounters a tragedy which forces him to make a decision – one that may affect his life and the future of the Superstition Mountains.
He got a weird feeling in his chest; his heart pounded fast, as if it was going to explode. His skin become hot and prickly. His emotions started to boil over. He looked up at the sky and saw dark clouds rolling in.
“You okay?” Robert asked.
Dean didn't answer. He stood up with his arms stretched out to the sky and screamed, “This is for you, as you are the so-called Elders!” I will not accept this duty!” he cried. “Free me now, and let me have my peace!”
All of a sudden lightning bolted out of the darkened sky. The ground shook. Another bolt shot down and hit Dean right in the chest with enormous force.
“Hold on, Dean!” Robert shouted.
Deep rumbles shook the earth. Dean fell to the ground, convulsing violently. Sparks circled his body. A loud, moaning sound came from inside the canyon. Some rocks tumbled down the ridge and fell right beside Dean, missing him by inches. He grabbed for his pendant, just to make sure it was still there. Robert crawled over to him, amazed at the energy enveloping his body.
“Go, Robert, go!” Dean cried. “I don’t want you to get hurt.”
“I'm not leaving you, my boy.” Robert reached to grab Dean’s arm and an electric shock hurled him back about ten feet before he hit the ground.
“Leave, Robert . . . please!” Dean begged.
