It's been a year since Mitch Duchesne helped recover el Registro de Dios, an ancient artifact that reveals shocking information about human evolution. In addition to explaining how rapid, nonrandom mutations have enabled people with a rare gene to telepathically send data, the Registro contains a prophecy that places Mitch at the center of an international conspiracy. Behind the conspiracy is Lucas Shore, a wealthy industrialist on a mission to engineer -- and rule over -- a world that takes the ideals of social justice to frightening extremes. To unravel Shore's alliance with his fellow Senders, Mitch must sever ties with everybody he loves. But will his sacrifice be enough to stop humanity from destroying itself?
