Cal MacDonnell is a happily married New York cop with a loving family. Seth Raincrest is a photographer whose self-involved nature has alienated even his closest friends. They have nothing in common—except that they suffer from retrograde amnesia. It's as if they just appeared out of thin air thirteen years ago, and nothing has been able to restore their memories. Now that forgotten past has caught up to them with a vengeance.

Cal and Seth's lives are turned upside down as they are stalked by otherworldly beings who know their past identities, intent on killing them and anyone who gets in their way. In the balance hangs the life of a child who might someday restore a broken empire to peace and prosperity. With no clue why they're being hunted, they must accept the aid of a strange, beautiful woman who's promised to unlock their secrets. Cal and Seth must stay alive long enough to protect their loved ones, recover their true selves—and save two worlds from tyranny and destruction.
