Civilization has come to an end. The past has been forgotten. Truth has turned to legend, and legends lost to the dust of ages.
Aside from their questionable claim to humanity, Evelyn Wynstea and Aleistar D'Ath have next to nothing in common.
One is a precognitive killing machine, a cold-hearted assassin that affirms her existence by ending the lives of magi; the other is an amnesiac healer forgotten by everyone he's ever known, a man whose secrets are hidden even from himself.
They move in different spheres, serve different purposes, live in vastly different worlds and ages - yet they are connected by a mysterious image: a burning city wreathed in silver flames, a vision that has haunted both of them since they can remember.
What is it they see?
The distant past? A likely future? Something else entirely?
Neither truly knows, though both are aware that the mystery must be solved if they wish to live.
With nightmare figures dogging them at every turn and shadows of the past demanding retribution for crimes they cannot remember, instincts and uncertain mortal memories are all they can trust as healer and assassin seek to untangle the threads of fate from both ends, living parallel lives as they quest for that forgotten in the age of Mnemosyne.
