Description

They murdered his wife and son. They burned down his house. They beat him within an inch of his life. And then they realized they had the wrong man.

They should have killed him when they had the chance.


Will Stark is a self-made multi-billionaire, happily married and a proud father. He arrives home to find his house destroyed and his family murdered, and is himself rescued from certain death by a mysterious trio.
His rescuers are part of a splinter faction of a centuries-old secret society that has developed incredible technological advances, and unlocked the method to release humanity's innate potential, and skills long thought the realm of magic. Will was mistakenly believed to be a key dissident and fugitive, on the run from the primary group, known as the Aliomenti.
Society believes him dead, and Will elects to work from the shadows to learn the secrets of the Aliomenti, secrets that can help him seek his own form of vengeance.
Or, perhaps, become the man they'd sought all along.

    Need lots of popcorn cuz at the end of this great read it got rather mind-boggling. Loving mind twisters this went just a little beyond even my comprehension. Almost. Still an enjoyable series to continue with to sort out what really happens when Will and Hope finally do meet. Curiosity got the cat in this instance. KSW

    Very entertaining introduction to a fascinating sci fi world. I am struck by dystopian futures and this is one of the best, although, I'm not sure it will remain in the dystopian genre at least in my mind. The story is engaging, the characters fascinating and well developed (for the most part,) and I'm sure will become more so as the story progresses, even though the next part of the story is a thousand years in the past. I look forward to more plot and character development, as well as finding more about the two organizations that are somewhat sparsely described in this the first part of a long (hopefully) series.

    I found this book via Bookbub. I liked the story description and it was free so I figured why not? I finished it and immediately bought book 2. I didn't care how much, I just had to have it. I just can't believe how lucky I am to have found this book. There is very little of this book I didn't like. Well paced, good story, great characters. I was able to predict who some of the characters actually were, but that only made the story that much more enjoyable. I love stories that travel back and forth in time, but if the author fails to keep things straight, the story suffers. This author obviously took time to make sure the story's timeline was flawless. I can't wait to start reading book two.

    A new author for me.. In my early years (teens) I read a lot of science fiction. Andre Norton, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein & others. As I grew older ( now 71), I drifted away from that genre into authors of mystery & related fiction like David Baldacci, Steve Berry, Lee Child, Robert Crais, Barry Isler, Vince Flynn, Hillerman, Ludlum, Greg Iles, J A Vance, Metzler, Doug Preston, Robert Wayne White, Robert Parker, Grisham, Sanford, Silva & others. I really enjoyed this return to the future. So much sci-fi became sci-fantasy & to far fetched. Alex has spun a very entertaining tale that I found hard to put down until finished. I definitely will read the rest of the series.. Ron S

    The book started out well, but lost its way, becoming muddled and confusing. The ending lacked any plausibility.

    The description of the book was interesting and I think it that the author met my expectations. The only reason I did't give it a 5 star rating was it got a tad confusing in the middle of the book with characters relationships and developing Wills "Energy". But I liked the plot and the suspense well enough to get the next book to see how Will mets his future wife and the evil "Leader". I have been a fan of people using the "force" or in this case "energy" to meet the antagonists. The book is worth the price and prove to be something enjoyable on a rainy day!
  • Good series to read

    Overall, this is a good series. It has a nice concept. I can't wait for it to come together and reconcile the main character.
  • One of the best books I've read this year

    This is an incredible start to a series. A man comes home, trying to prevent the murder of his wife and child - and then all the wildness begins. There are two opposing groups similar to the Illuminati who battle across the world with their powers seeking one man - Will Stark. The plot to this book is so Byzantine it's almost scary. With fabulous characters, tons of action, vivid imagination, and advanced high tech this was one of those books you finish in a single sitting. Recommended highly!
