Two years after twenty-year-old Finn Collins was abducted and almost killed by an over-zealous scientist, he survives a knife attack which proves fatal for his assailant. Fearful of being blamed for the death, he flees his home to avoid arrest. Alone and disoriented, he eventually teams up with a furtive, and feisty girl, who gives him the support he needs as he undergoes significant paranormal adjustments.
These modifications develop into worrying, but helpful new skills, and he becomes aware that there are other talented individuals whose origins are more extraordinary and complex than his own. Five are mysterious, frightened adult teenagers, but three others are extremely dangerous and vicious psychopaths.
As his transformation, and intrinsic paranormal skills mature, he moves to challenge these formidable neo-sorcerers, and the callous researchers who attempted to cultivate them. He finally emerges as a skilled paranormal warrior, and although there is wickedness unveiled in his eventual historic, and astonishing discovery, there is also hope.
