    The story begins on the Italian coast in 1962. A young innkeeper watches in disbelief as a beautiful American girl gets out of a boat and climbs towards his hotel. She turns out to be an actress, on the run from the shenanigans going on down the coast in Rome at the filming of Cleopatra. A few days later international star Richard Burton, much the worse for wear, appears in the village, too. Half a century later, and half a world away in Hollywood, an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio's back lot - searching for the woman he last saw in his hotel 50 years before.

    Aria Rose has powers. After ingesting a mystic heart, she now has the same magical energy coursing through her body as the other mystics in New York: she can fly, has super-human strength, and can take on the appearance of any person she wants. This is especially helpful as she is no longer speaking to Hunter, the mystic rebel she abandoned her family to love, and Turk - Hunter’s best friend who is crazy about Aria - is acting a little too clingy.

Though shy at first, May quickly finds herself drawn into the eccentric troupe of characters aboard her new home.

But, like the armadillos that flourish in Texas' barren landscape, she is a survivor. In her escape, she gravitates to those who are just as maltreated as her.
