A riveting new thriller that takes you deep into the unknown, where the only thing darker than family secrets is the mystery at the heart of the Amazon mystery that may just have you believe there's magic out there.
Six months after adventurer Dr. Emmet Cole goes missing in the Amazon, his location beacon sends out a signal; Emmet's wife, Tess, along with her son and Emmet's film crew, embark on a journey to find him.
When the spirit of Dr. Emmet Cole mysteriously enters Jahel, the message is clear... go home! Instead, Tess determines to go into the jungle to find clues to Cole’s whereabouts.
When the crew of the Magus goes blind from tree spores, lone holdout AJ must overcome his most-paralyzing fear to find a cure before the blindness becomes permanent; the local tribe stalks the crew and judges if they are worthy to stay in the jungle.
As the search continues for Emmet and his crew, the Magus comes across one of Emmet's crew members who went missing alongside Emmet. They soon discover that he's been cursed and learn the mystical story behind the curse, which is now a matter of life and death. Lincoln faces a challenge when the rest of the crew want to leave their plagued colleague behind to continue the mission, and he must try to be their moral compass.
Another vessel runs the Magus crew aground; a shocking discovery leads to tears.
At the Sahte Falls, the crew of the Magus find footage showing that Dr. Cole's mental condition was deteriorating as he grew ever closer to the Source. Meanwhile, Lena confesses a secret to one of her crewmates.
While the Magus crew explores an abandoned research base for clues to Emmet's continuing existence, a creature with a taste for human flesh stalks them. Meanwhile, Kurt must choose between himself and the safety of the crew.
The violent death of a crew member plunges the Magus into chaos and forces the others to live in fear, while Jahel ignores her father to desperately call for spiritual help.
