A boy born with supernatural gifts could be the long-awaited prophet; a girl with deceitful intentions will risk it all for his secret. Sean Marrok lives in the Dredge under the controlling thumb of the Regime. His magic power to foresee events gives him the edge to win a two-million-to-one bet. But at what cost?
Framed for destroying Regime property, Marrok finds himself on a commuter ship to the prison on Roan, which gets ambushed, landing at the secret base of the Network. There Marrok again runs into Ambrosia, the exotic woman who believes he is destined to be the Savior of the people, and Chantelle, the sexy charmer who saves his life...again.
Will Marrok see what's to come? Or will his third eye be blinded by his own decisions?
