Two enemy factions race toward a childbirth: The Circle of Benediction, a secret society whose mission is to destroy anyone with supernatural abilities, and the Watchers, an underground group sworn to protect those with powers.
The Watchers, led by Jacob Pennington, an elderly man of unnatural strength, secure the child just before the Circle destroys him. But, can they keep him alive despite the Circle's resources?
Held up at Pennington's Rampart Industries, the Watchers will make their stand. Will they withstand the assault without the assistance of the child, or the child's blood?
The birth of this child changes everything...and so would his death.
