"Goddess" tells the story of Rosie Nolan, a wee Irish girl who suddenly manifests the ability to perform impossible feats of telekinesis (such as splitting Scotland off from England and moving it a hundred miles north), as well as having an uncannily empathic relationship with animals. After saving the life of sad-sack narrator Jeff at the zoo, Rosie hooks up with him, her overzealous environmentalist friend Mudhawk, and his ticked-off ex-girlfriend Sam. Soon after, the group is on the lam from a rogue C.I.A. agent who wants to capture Rosie's power for the betterment of the United States' government, and a really rogue police constable who has a more personal agenda, bloody revenge. From there, the chase takes them, courtesy of Rosie's uncontrollable, godlike powers, around the globe and up to the Arctic Circle, with mayhem and strangeness trailing in their wake. There, the startling truth about Rosie's abilities is revealed. But who will be left alive to hear it?
