The Time Shifters are in danger. Someone wants what they have and are willing to kill if necessary to get it.
Akalya couldn't hide in the past forever. The time has come to untangle the threads of a conspiracy so sinister that her very life hangs in the balance, as well as the lives of all of her kind.
Compelled by her promise to help Marcus, the half-breed, to learn to control his abilities, Akalya is conflicted by the need to go underground to elude the rich entrepreneur who continues to seek out others of her kind that even Akalya doesn't know about, and the mysterious researcher working behind the scenes who already came too close to dissecting her best friend.
Akalya cannot leave, but she cannot stay. Most of all she must see that no more of her kind breed mutants like Marcus, who could become a danger to them all.
