Sudi never thought that one note could change her life; she just thought it would give her a chance at dating her longtime crush, Scott. But that note that fell out of her locker was not from Scott. Abdel was sent by the Hour Priest, a secret Egyptian society, to tell Sudi, along with Meri and Dalila, that they are all descendants of the Egyptian Pharaohs, and they have powers that only they can use to stop the Cult of Anubis. And before they know it, all three girls turn into unusual creatures: a bird, a cat, and a cobra. Their destiny has been set for them and if they still don't believe it, maybe the evil forces will help them figure it out.

This book centers on a cast of deer, who often use their own special vocabulary (deer, for instance, are "Herla"; an insult to a Herla would be to call him a "brailah," or hedgehog). An ancient prophecy says that a fawn with an oak leaf-shaped mark on his forehead is destined to free his kind from the "lord of lies." When Rannoch is born with such a mark, the elders know to protect him from the power-hungry Lord of the Herd, Sgorr, and arrange his escape. Meanwhile, Sgorr conquers herd after herd. Rannoch doesn't want to fight, but he knows he must confront Sgorr and fulfill the rest of the prophecy.
