Author Brian MacLearn wonderfully blends genres as he constructs characters, evokes emotion, and gives readers much to think about. The story is mainly about Matthew, a man who has precognitive abilities. They stem from a bloodline dating back thousands of years. Mathew's story is told through his interactions with the other characters, beginning with Jack in 1956 as a boy. In the present, Cole Jansen is the protagonist and picks up Matthew's story.
An apocalyptic event is going to happen, and the world will go through a type of reset. What will be fought for in the aftermath is the control of the narrative as the world reshapes itself. Matthew and those ancestors who also had foresight abilities have been the targets of a group that will stop at nothing to be in charge. It isn't about stopping what is to come, but about being the ones who control the new world order. Matthew helps others to see that living with a purpose is what will change the world for the better.
Matthew can see the future and the downside should the opposition attain its goals. Some claim that he is more than a man. Cole has an important role to play, only he doesn't know it yet. He is to protect the next child from the bloodline who has powers far beyond those of Matthew. She will be the one to lead the world to a better place, but only if those Matthew has spent his life assembling can protect her until she is ready.
