"The day the time storm struck, Marc Despard was one of the handful to survive. Mist walls, moving endlessley across the surface of the earth, created a devastated, shifting patchwork of temporal anarchy.
But Despard saw strange, dazzling patterns in his head that he knew could lead him through the storm. In the violent, terrifying landscape of an ever-changing world he began to realise his awe-inspiring mission: he must become nothing less than master of the universe - he must become god."
