When seventeen-year-old Ethan awakens after being drugged and kidnapped, he has no memory of his life or the world around him. Society is fractured and full of twins, each pair harbouring the secret of who is good and who is evil. Enlisting help from four teenagers at his treating hospital, and a shrewd detective named Jessica, Ethan's new-found companions are just as surprising, as they freely use potions and technologically advanced rings, items which prove to be invaluable protections. For not only is Ethan is confronted by the evil Nuns, he finds there are many dangers in this unknown world, the least of all being the morphing Snake-shifts. But the danger does not end there, as somebody is still after him, and the Time Leeches have begun to kill. But worse than that, he eventually learns the reason why he himself is the biggest danger to all.
It is a story of mystery, deception, action and discovery, as Ethan struggles to find the truth of his stolen past and what it means for his future.
