A third world war and massive environmental catastrophe have all but annihilated the planet. Major cities have been reestablished and are being rebuilt on each of the six continents and a universal government has formed in order to facilitate the rebuilding of the world, and mainly to protect society from experiencing another war in the future.
This story takes place in the city of Alexandria, which is located in what used to be the Province of Ontario, Canada. Although organized religion has been outlawed in order to prevent another war, individuals across the earth are having encounters with the ancient God, Bära. During these encounters, the people's spirits are becoming "Awakened," and supernatural powers are being manifested like never before.
The story begins in the height of action as one of the main characters, Rayah, has just escaped incarceration by the Universal Government and is fleeing into the north country. Her goal is twofold: To avoid being caught, and to find her husband, Aiden, who has been captured and whose location and wellbeing are unknown.
