The angelic Watcher, Orpheus, has informed the young Endorian, Ian Fetter that he is the heir to the map and key, which will aid him on his mission to retrieve the secrets and golden seal that have been hidden for over five thousand years. Marco Gonzales, a federal officer seeks the truth about his own identity, and joins Ian. They travel to Europe to train under the mystic Endorian, Abbot Adrius, who reveals the true nature of evil, and the coming of the Dark Lord. Adrius solicits the help of Kasbar, the leader of the rebel forces, and his sidekick, Brother O'Leary, to find the command center of a space weapon that can destroy an entire city. Meanwhile, the Supreme Minister of Europe, Balarus, has joined forces with the evil Watcher, Toumus, to defeat the rebels, and create a new order by cloning a new, more powerful race of Goths in a chamber deep in the earth. Toumus has sent the Goth, Cronos, to stop Ian from retrieving the golden seal, and secure the map and key. On his mission, Ian will experience the trials and tribulations of the power of the forces of darkness, and will be betrayed by the one he trusts the most.

In three years as a Watcher, Grace Evans has made a name for herself and is on her way to becoming The Council’s best asset. To protect the future she must also protect the past, making sure history happens as it should and saving mankind from themselves. It’s always a nuanced line to walk, but it’s something the fiercely determined Grace never fails to achieve. For her next mission, The Council instructs her that she must stop a man named Euan Cameron from rejoining the Jacobite Army and dying in battle at Culloden. Once Grace arrives in the Scottish Highlands of 1746, it doesn't take her long to discover that this mission is unlike any she has previously undertaken. Euan is dedicated to his Chief and his clan, with no interest in abandoning his duty no matter what this kind and intriguing stranger has to say. Grace has only a short time to persuade Euan to walk away from a battle she knows will end in his death, and very few options to achieve her goal. She isn't certain what the consequences of failure are, and she definitely doesn't want to find out. As the time for his departure nears and Euan remains steadfast, Grace begins to wonder if her only option to save him and the future is to abandon all of The Council’s rules. When Grace makes her choice, it changes the outcome to something neither of them could ever have expected, altering their lives and history forever.

Using exclusive access to key insiders, Shane Harris charts the rise of America's surveillance state over the past twenty-five years and highlights a dangerous paradox: Our government's strategy has made it harder to catch terrorists and easier to spy on the rest of us. Our surveillance state was born in the brain of Admiral John Poindexter in 1983. Poindexter, Reagan's National Security Advisor, realized that the United States might have prevented the terrorist massacre of 241 Marines in Beirut if only intelligence agencies had been able to analyze in real time data they had on the attackers. Poindexter poured government know-how and funds into his dream-a system that would sift reams of data for signs of terrorist activity. Decades later, that elusive dream still captivates Washington. After the 2001 attacks, Poindexter returned to government with a controversial program, called Total Information Awareness, to detect the next attack. Today it is a secretly funded operation that can gather personal information on every American and millions of others worldwide. But Poindexter's dream has also become America's nightmare. Despite billions of dollars spent on this digital quest since the Reagan era, we still can't discern future threats in the vast data cloud that surrounds us all. But the government can now spy on its citizens with an ease that was impossible-and illegal-just a few years ago. Drawing on unprecedented access to the people who pioneered this high-tech spycraft, Harris shows how it has shifted from the province of right- wing technocrats to a cornerstone of the Obama administration's war on terror. Harris puts us behind the scenes and in front of the screens where twenty-first-century spycraft was born. We witness Poindexter quietly working from the private sector to get government to buy in to his programs in the early nineties. We see an army major agonize as he carries out an order to delete the vast database he's gathered on possible terror cells-and on thousands of innocent Americans-months before 9/11. We follow General Mike Hayden as he persuades the Bush administration to secretly monitor Americans based on a flawed interpretation of the law. After Congress publicly bans the Total Information Awareness program in 2003, we watch as it is covertly shifted to a "black op," which protects it from public scrutiny. When the next crisis comes, our government will inevitably crack down on civil liberties, but it will be no better able to identify new dangers. This is the outcome of a dream first hatched almost three decades ago, and The Watchers is an engrossing, unnerving wake-up call.
