At the end of the twenty-first century, the catastrophic Purge War destroys planet Earth. Horrific repercussions roll across the ages, jeopardizing the future for the remnants of humanity. Generations later, time is running out. A scientific group called the Time Forward Project finds hope with the discovery of a deep-space wormhole in which they can journey back through time and take measures to prevent the war. To their dismay, the portal is unstable and shrinking. They have little choice but to take desperate, drastic measures and forge ahead.
In 2355, Kristen Winters is an angry, determined young woman who is fed up with the miserable circumstances of her life in captivity. In a bold move, she escapes, yet finds herself facing a similar circumstance. She crosses paths with a Time Forward recruitment team and volunteers to become a time agent. She survives the awful genetic modifications and required training.
As the protégé of the tough, cantankerous Richard Kants, her impressive potential threatens to overtake his considerable prowess. Kants has personal motives for changing the past, and he orchestrates a scheme on the side to improve his odds. Their missions are thwarted at every turn by a rival group called the Keplers, who bring the duo's antagonistic partnership to an end when they assassinate Kants.
Kristen finds herself somehow linked to a present-day, hot shot AI geek who works for the FBI. Hunter Coburn has pending wedding plans, a high-paying job he loves, and an “I-Want-It-All” attitude. With this sudden, bewildering twist in his life, he must fight for survival as he tries to make sense of inexplicable, terrifying jumps in time.
Thrown together, Hunter and Kristen risk everything to overcome the destructive forces in the past, present, and future. In doing so, they must discover and rise to their own destinies through the vivid, fast-paced, nearly incomprehensible challenges they face. If they fail, all is lost.
