IN ALMOST EVERY BELIEF SYSTEM ON EARTH, there exists a single unifying mythos: thousands of years ago a great flood devastated the Earth's inhabitants. From the ruins of this cataclysm, a race of beings emerged from the sea bestowing knowledge and culture upon humanity, saving us from our selfish drive toward extinction. Some say this race were "ancient aliens" who came to assist our evolution.
But what if they weren't alien at all? What if they evolved right here on Earth, alongside humans . . .
and they are still here? And, what if the World's governments already know?
Kelly Graham is a narcissistic self-assured freelance photographer specializing in underwater assignments. While on a project in the Amazon with his best friend, Chris D'Souza, a mysterious and beautiful government official, Freya Nilsson, enters Kelly's life and turns it upside down. Her simple request to retrieve a strange object from deep underwater puts him in the middle of an international conspiracy.
A conspiracy that threatens to change the course of human history.
FIFTEEN THOUSAND YEARS AGO, the knowledge bringers—an amphibious, non-humanoid species known as the Huahuqui—came after a great global flood, gifting humans with math, science, and civility.
We killed them all.
Seventy years ago, we found one of their corpses preserved in ice and eventually created a clone named K’in. Our governments fought over the creature and we killed it, too.
Now, a sinkhole in Siberia has opened, revealing new secrets.
FREYA NILSSON spent the last five years trying to forget her role in the Huahuqui cloning program. She hid her son, KJ, from the regimes and agencies she believed would exploit him for the powers he acquired through his father’s bond with K’in.
An innocent trip to help KJ understand his abilities results in the conspiracy she fought to bury exploding back to life. Chased by new foes and hounded to put the world first, all Freya can think of is protecting KJ—at all costs.
IT HAS BEEN SEVENTEEN YEARS since the Nine Veils abducted half of the Nenets children and their bonded Huahuqui from Antarctica. Despite years of searching by Jonathan Teller and the NSA, nothing has been heard from the clandestine organization or the abductees.
KJ Nilsson, the remaining children and their Huahuqui—collectively known as the Stratum—have grown up in relative safety at Alpha Base in Antarctica. Thanks to the work of Lucy Taylor, now President of the United States, the Stratum are to be recognized as a unique, symbiotic, race and legal citizens of several great nations.
But, things do not go as planned when the Nine Veils come out of hiding,with their own army of Huahuqui, determined to become the most elite power on the planet.
Now, KJ and the Stratum must prove they deserve their new status— by defending the citizens of Earth against their own kind.
Whoever wins, the age of man is over.
