Iara is fantasy adventure that blends traditional mythology and folklore. The central theme is that Iara, a legendary supernatural being, is embodied in the form of a seemingly ordinary human, who happens to have no idea of her special status. Mara is a modern young woman who lives in New Zealand with her boyfriend, Sebastian. After a sequence of disturbing dreams and visions connected with underwater beings and prowling jaguars, she travels to Canada to visit old friends and seek solace from her nightmares. Whilst in Canada Mara falls in love with an Algonquin native called Jesse and is drawn into the life of his tribe. As the story progresses Mara learns that she is actually the reincarnation of Iara, the legendary half serpent and half human figure from Brazilian folk lore. Iara is intent on seeking revenge for the loss of her love Boiuna, who (it turns out) is Jesse. This discovery reawakens Iara's passion, strength and protectiveness through Mara.
