Thanks to the curse of foresight, Dr. Kayara Ingham has had a vision of her husband's death. While she desperately tries to avert the grim future, she meets a mysterious Osiris Corporation man who gives her an impossible ultimatum. When Kay is forced to choose, she learns that Osiris Corporation is not what it seems. The company is made up of a people that call themselves the Architects of Lore and, like many powerful organisations, their reach is extensive; one might say inescapable.
Sindri Modulf has been tested many times throughout his long life, but for every feat he has faced, he has artfully dodged countless more with easy humor and a deadly axe. Those well-honed abilities will prove useless when he is faced with one of the greatest challenges of his life; he must bring back a grief-stricken seer from the edge of catatonia. Unwilling to let the mind of the most powerful woman in 1,000 years be ravaged by empaths and telepaths, Sindri does something he hasn't done for centuries.
