Plot[edit]

Holden Matthews wakes up from a 12-year coma and discovers that he now has supernatural abilities, ones that propel him into the middle of a dangerous conspiracy. Now that he is out of his coma, Holden wants to figure out what happened to him during the past dozen years and how to live in a world that has changed significantly while he was in his coma. However, perhaps the biggest question of all is why it happened to him beyond this Earth's timeline in the hereafter. As Holden tries to adjust to adulthood, a mysterious woman named Willa warns him not to trust the people around him.
