For every choice that we make, there is a world where the opposite happened. Those worlds are guarded by an ancient family known as the Rikers. They were chosen to watch over those worlds and keep the balance in time. When an old version of Earth begins to fall into chaos, two Rikers must travel through the portal to save this world of pirates, kings, and gold. Luc and Callum are brothers who are as different as the worlds that they protect. Still, they both find their selves pulled deep into the matter of humans. Luc finds himself the right hand man and lover to the darkest pirate on the sea. While Callum finds a prison with an unlikely inmate, his new home. The ideas of freedom, from those in power, love toward another, and a desire for a purpose beyond protecting the portal fill both brothers. Even if they find a way to work together, will they be able to save this world and their futures?
