After discovering the ugly truth behind the death of his parents, the life of former soldier Michael Cortez takes a downward spiral. A night with some friends presents the chance to bring justice to the past with the use of a scrapped military time travel project. It doesn't take long for him to figure out that the stuff they taught in history class was false and only holding a nugget of truth. Frost was only a child when life as she understood it came to a violent halt. The death of her mother has left her cold to the feelings of those around her, but it has made her one of the strongest human warriors left in the world. Humanity stands on the precipice of extinction at the hands of ruthless creatures and she would rather die on her feet than live on her knees. Though there are over a thousand years separating them they will learn that there is no real way to defy fate. All that has passed did so because it has already happened. To defy augury only ensures that the power of fate fills the void created by the disruption of its plan with something that is equally definitive.
