Alex Caine wishes he had a direction, but it pays to be careful what you wish for.

Alex Caine is looking for direction, and finds it when he is recruited by a secret organisation to head off an impending doom, foretold by Seers as already somehow linked to his destiny.

Claude Darvill is desperately trying to reach his father, Robert Hood. When the company, Black Diamond, reveals that Hood had gone missing after chasing Alex Caine, Darvill takes up the hunt himself.

Alex and his crew close in on three amateur mages in Britain’s north, who think they have uncovered ancient magic that will reveal great powers. But they are caught in a vortex and pulled through to a strange lost city, isolated in the void. Trapped in a place removed from everything they know, ruled by a hierarchy of monsters, Alex and his friends must find a way to escape Obsidian.
