'Alex Caine, a fighter by trade, is drawn into a world he never knew existed - a world he wishes he'd never found. Alex Caine is a martial artist fighting in illegal cage matches. His powerful secret weapon is an unnatural vision that allows him to see his opponents' moves before they know their intentions themselves. An enigmatic Englishman, Patrick Welby, approaches Alex after a fight and reveals, 'I know your secret.' Welby shows Alex how to unleash a breathtaking realm of magic and power, drawing him into a mind-bending adventure beyond his control. And control is something Alex values above all else... A cursed grimoire binds Alex to Uthentia, a chaotic Fey godling, who leads him towards chaos and murder, an urge Alex finds harder and harder to resist. Befriended by Silhouette, a monstrous Kin beauty, Alex sets out to recover the only things that will free him - the shards of the Darak. But that powerful stone also has the potential to unleash a catastrophe which could mean the end of the world as we know it.' (Publication summary)

Alex Caine is trying to build a new life and come to terms with his recently acquired magical talents, not to mention his Kin girlfriend, Silhouette. He cantt help feeling untethered, but one night the answer seems to present itself when he is approached by a representative of a shadowy organisation. Armour is recruiting and they want Alex on their side. But the ghosts of Bound aren't gone. The relic hunter, Claude Darvill, is trying to get in touch with his father, Robert Hood. Darvill takes over Black Diamond Incorporated and starts hunting. He is determined to find out what happened to Hood and won't let anything stand in his way. And in Britain's north, three amateur occult mages think they have uncovered an ancient magic that will reveal to them great powers. But they have no idea what they're releasing. When all these forces converge, Alex and Silhouette find themselves trapped in a nightmare world from which escape seems impossible.
