The balance of good and evil has been left in the hands of a thirteen year old...
Since the beginning of time, Karmanic matter worked silently and unassisted keeping good and evil in balance, until growing greed in the world meant Karma couldn’t keep up. As World War I rages, the secret Karmanic Sovereign Legion works behind the scenes to help Karma.
A suspicious train accident and an odd stone-shaped object that belonged to his father thrust Cole McCarthy and two schoolmates into the middle of this battle to keep dark forces in check.
With only the powerful stone, a letter, and grandfatherly Norm to guide them, the trio must unravel clues and tap into unknown strengths to discover who Cole’s father really was and keep themselves and those they love safe.
It’s been just over a year since a train wreck took his father and Cole discovered his family’s ties to the secret Karmanic Sovereign Legion. Now, people around the world are experiencing odd episodes of temporary paralysis and memory loss. The Legion is powerless against these miasmas, except for Cole who seems immune to the spells.
When the Legion discovers these episodes are part of a master plan to rob people of free will, Cole must decide if he will join forces with his hated enemy in order to save humanity. Confused and frightened by his growing karmanic powers, Cole becomes increasingly reckless. He is not sure who can be trusted, and struggles with whether or not to distance himself from his close friends Sophie and Britten in order to protect them.
Friendships, middle school drama and the Slider Games are woven into a semester where free will hangs in the balance. The quest to save the world from misguided good intentions takes Cole and the rest of the Legion to Europe as they discover the meaning of family and what defines an enemy.
