While canoeing through a remote area of Pal-Ul-Don, Korak sees a boatload of Ho-Don priests approaching an altar high on the shore. He watches them unload a bound female captive. They place her on the altar and depart. As Korak prepares to free her, a giant eagle flies down and takes his sacrifice, carrying the girl off to a high mountain in the distance. The son of Tarzan manages to seriously wound the bird with an arrow. He trails them for many miles on the chance she might still be alive, and finally climbs the towering mountain to the nest, where the bird has collapsed at last. Suddenly its mate approaches and Korak feathers it with arrows, killing it also. The girl is alive but unconscious in the nest, and there is also a baby eagle, that tries to bite Korak's leg. Korak carries the girl down to safety in the jungle trees, and doctors her injuries. She thinks that the bird has carried her to heaven and that Korak is the son of the Sun. Each day Korak takes care of her while her injuries heal, and goes back up to visit and feed the little eaglet with meat from horta. Frightened and discouraged because her own people would not let her return after having been chosen as sacrifice, and because Korak, who she has a crush on, will not let her remain with him, Lo-za runs off into the jungle. Korak tries to track her, but it begins raining and two Jatos are hunting him, so he has to give up. The day comes for him to give the now adult bird a test flight, and he successfully takes it out for a ride, having harnessed it with a hood. Lo-za returns to her parents' cave, but is seen by others who bring the priests. They decide she must now be burned at the stake, but Korak swoops down on Sky Chief and rescues her at the last moment. He then takes her to his friend Jadon, king of Ja-lur.
