NASA Scientist Roger Daly realized his life’s work, creating a man-made wormhole that shot him through space to a treacherous, unknown planet. Now, Roger finds himself abandoned and all alone in a strange new world.
The planet, Eldon, turns out to be an intergalactic crossroads for wormholes. There he embarks on an epic journey where he encounters various beasts and meets a band of misfit travelers who lead him to a human civilization far to the east—and a way home. However, Roger soon learns is that he is headed for an epic battle for supremacy on Eldon between the natives, their former leaders, and an evil faction from another planet led by a dictator called Magnus.
Meanwhile, back on Earth, Roger’s son, Bill, is caught in his own terrifying journey. Bill stumbles on information that leads him to believe that his father didn’t die in an explosion at NASA, as NASA officials claimed. Rather, he discovers that his father is still somewhere out there—alive. As Bill pulls the string, he alerts and angers some very powerful people who want him dead. As he runs for his life across the United States, he meets someone who knows of Eldon—and how to get there. Roger was a terrible father who neglected everything in his life for his science—including his son. Bill grew up hating Roger, but as he got older, the hate turned to apathy. However, their separate journeys bring them closer together and no longer worlds apart.
In the end, Roger squares off against the villainous Magnus, who has designs on not only Eldon, but also Earth. He also holds the key to let Roger return home. As Roger seeks to defeat Magnus and return home through a portal known as The Path, he is shocked to discover the true identity of Magnus and this new utopia he built on Eldon. Magnus turns out to be a very familiar face in a very familiar place.
