A novel by

 
 
During March, 2001, junior high school teacher Taharqa "Harq" Douglass discovered two life-altering realities: that his foreign doctor friend Sayntomush Binipythago "Thago" Barabdura was in fact a Suftem Warmunk from a solar systemic civilisation of Numans entirely unknown to the people of Earth, and that Harq himself possessed chronosis, the ability to behold the future.

Dragged into a virtual suicide mission to rescue the Numan princess Azir Schtagfayar Utto, upon whose fate depended millions of people, Thago and Harq liberated their target and escaped into orbit. Making their way to a safehouse on Venus, they emancipated an enslaved, mysterious, traumatised, and dangerous Human boy named Ti-Joto. On Qorodis, the political-economic centre of the System, Thago enrolled Harq and Ti-Joto in the Suftem Assembly to train as Chronostics and ascend to what Thago claimed was their fate: to be the ultimate Seers who would discover the means to destroy all evil, reshape all civilisation, and reveal the nature, origin, and destiny of the universe.

But not even the Chronostics foresaw the terrorist attack that turned the cosmopolis of Naayt into an inferno, nor the security sweep that put Humans by the tens of thousands, including Harq and Ti-Joto, into a secret "white hole" prison, where not even Thago could find them, and simple survival is an open question... .
