When a sacred artifact is stolen from United Nations cultural scientist Dr. Kurt Stone, he wants answers. His search leads him to the top secret Aurora Project, where Stone learns the team has crossed the ultimate frontier… death itself.
On the other side of this life is a universe called the Realm, the next step in human evolution. Yet not all those who reside there are benevolent. A dark power lurks with mysterious ties to the Brotherhood and the goal of conquering both sides of death.
With enemies closing in, Stone and his new team travel this world and the next in a search for what really lies beyond… in the Realm.
