In the near future where ancient enemies sit on the brink of war, seventeen-year-old Michael Saxon carries a powerful secret inside his DNA that both sides will do anything to acquire.
When he was just seven years old, Michael’s parents, scientists at a questionable private military contractor called Enbright, vanished without a trace and left Michael a small crystal. Haunted by nightmares, Michael is desperate to discover the truth about his parents and is convinced the crystal holds the key.
Following high school, Michael accepts an internship at Enbright, despite his reservations, and puts his unique skills to work helping locate an energy source for the company. But soon Michael and his young coworker, Emma, discover Enbright is hiding an even more powerful energy source in the form of four apple-sized crystals—and two rival ancient societies will stop at nothing to acquire it for themselves.
As romance blossoms between Michael and Emma, they must navigate the lies and deceit that lurk around every corner if Michael is to discover the secret of his identity and prevent a world war. But is he ready for the responsibility that comes with knowing the truth?
