In a reality where Earth is no more, humans are now residing on alien planets as refugees, trying to keep their head down and survive as a species. One such planet is Tso’got, a planet rife with corruption and misery, where strength is everything. Humankind have been accepted there since 2056, but tensions are high due to Adaptations: the impossible powers of the newest generation.
Unnatural and arcane abilities incite chaos and up the stakes for criminal and common man alike; as Nicholas Weld takes up arms, he finds himself in a violent storm that reaches far beyond what he could have ever imagined. But as he joins forces with unlikely and tenuous allies in the maelstrom, all must ask what they are willing to sacrifice for the greater good.
