Neco Baal awakes from a coma and quickly discovers that things in the Fifth World are not quite as they seem. After returning home in search of answers, he finds a letter that leads him back to the place where it all began. This time, the mission isn’t to genetically farm enlightenment, it’s to destroy it. Refusing to carry out The Council’s sinister orders, he finds himself in a race against the clock and 11 chosen soldiers, intent on following their spiritual commands. Will the prophets of a new age and the Cadence of the Sun collide or will they find out who the true puppeteers really are?
