It is the year 2020.

Four years have passed since Rex Talion formed his Quid Pro Quo. He and his group have slowly moved the the still unsuspected world into chaos. Another war is imminent and the long foretold prophesy of the arrival of the Discarded One is on the horizon.

Regina Tate is the only one aware of Talion's insidious plans and the impending Degan invasion. For this reason, she and her son, Dante have been marked for death by a most unlikely source.

Quentin, the man from the stars sent to Earth on a mission to save the planet has ignored his responsibilities. The powerful Vestigare has disobeyed the Synod and maintained his relationship with Regina and this action may spell doom for all of existence.

The penultimate book in the Opportvnvs Adest series will uncover revelations about these characters and others that will lead Earth on a collusion course towards destruction.......
