In ancient times, there were people who believed that the destiny of every man and woman on earth was governed by the Three Fates, Clotho, who spun the thread of a person's life, Lachesis who measured its length, and Atropos, who finally cut it. Three days after a person's birth, these individuals apportioned to them their lot in life, and no-one, not even the gods themselves, could go against their decree.
But that was back then. These days the Fates have gone corporate: Fortunata, an organisation that seeks out the most talented amongst mankind and shapes their destiny, helping them to fulfil their potential and benefit the rest of humanity. The problem is that two of the CEOs, Lydia and Hector Flint, have decided that they don't like the way that things are being run these days and are playing by their own rules. Their former partner, Cain, has other ideas, and when he finds out that Lydia and Hector are planning to systematically murder the people they are supposed to be helping, he takes matters into his own hands.
Aria Swift, and Jason Sabatini are on the Flints' hit list - two innocents who have no idea why Fortunata wants to kill them. They have never met, are not even aware of the other's existence, but their fates have been inextricably bound together, since October 6th 2008, when both of their lives changed forever. October 6th 2008 - the day that Jason's mother was killed in a freak electrical accident, and Aria's father was taken from her in a car crash.
It was a day that was never meant to happen.
When Aria and Jason narrowly escape death, they go on the run with Cain, only to find themselves flung into an alternate reality that bears no resemblance to the world they left behind. In this world being a Christian carries a mandatory death sentence, and the world is ruled by gang lords who rule with unbelievable brutality. Cain soon realises that the only way to keep them alive is to give Jason and Aria the power of the Moirai, making them Fates, so that they at least stand a chance against the dark forces that govern this new world. The only problem is, these dark forces are darker than they could ever have imagined. Ahriman, the God of Chaos has taken charge of things, and under his control, their problems can only go from bad to worse.
