The rifts are connected to a parallel world that exists in the same time and space as the Earths, but on a different plane. And the largest rift has taken place in Odettes city. Through these rifts, beings from the alternate world began spilling out, changing the sociological and political landscape in the lives of humans. Even though most have learned to acclimatize to this new situation, someboth contracts and contractorsstill find themselves succumbing to crimes, perhaps in their failure to adapt; thus, the need for people like Odette. Yet unbeknown to all of them, but soon theyll find themselves confronting, is the biggest threat of all, and to our planet itselfthe arrival of the father of all contracts, who has come to devour all of Earths life flow.
