Alexander Von Rossen is the last of a lineage of Guides of Time, an ancient civilisation that evolved underground and has been guiding mankind since the beginning of time. Their mission is to take humans to a higher state of knowledge and throughout the centuries, from Archimedes to Einstein, they have inspired breakthrough scientific discoveries. Mentoring an astonishing discovery is Alexander's last mission, but he has to face a new challenge: Ariane Claret, a young woman with an extraordinary talent for music whose destiny is mysteriously intertwined with his.
The final battle between Alexander and his sworn enemy, Zardoff, is inevitable, as Ariane struggles to accept Alexander's extraordinary story.
