Zyanya: Always and Forever is the beginning of a thre saga that takes place in a central Mexican rainforest. Zyanya is the name of the prosperous coffee plantation that Severo Alba founded. Former shaman and now deceased, Severo?s lineage was chosen to bear and raise the child who would one day become the Great Shaman, fulfilling a 550-year-old prophecy. His son and grandson reject their heritage. They flee from the legend, the rituals, and shamanism. Now the ancient prophecy?s time has come, when a great Shaman shall rise against evil, combining the power and wisdom of the most influential shamans in all the tribes. It is Jairo, Alba?s great-grandson?s time. Having been raised in Texas, away from Zyanya and the prophecies, 17-year-old Jairo is completely unaware of his legacy. The story begins when Tabatha, a 16-year-old girl from Dallas who is involuntarily moving with her parents to a third world country where her stepfather will be a doctor, arrives at a tiny village where the coffee plantation Zyanya is located. She is angry at leaving behind her life in Dallas and has a recurring dream about a boy who unsettles her. Uprooted from their city lives, these two teens face terrifying danger, as sorcery, magic, and romance touch their lives.
