How far would you go to remember your past?
Kieran Roark awakens overlooking Sydney Harbor, in a wheelchair, unable to remember anything about himself. What he does learn frightens and intrigues him. As part of a classified experiment, he will have one year to learn his identity or be euthanized. With the ability to go anywhere in the world, Kieran sets off on a dangerous journey that will take him halfway around the world before he remembers his name and the importance of his past. His death three hundred years before will not be in vain and what he remembers about war could save the Earth from a coming war. Whether Kieran believes the future is worth saving is another matter, until he meets Berkeley Bennett.
A promising young scientist, Berkeley has one mission: manipulate Kieran’s emotions in an attempt to bring back his memory. As her resolve crumbles and she falls in love, she is forced to make a harrowing decision that may cost Kieran’s life.
Racing across an unfamiliar world in a body he does not recall, will love help Kieran Roark discover who he was, and more importantly, who he is?
