Vincent Alexander used to be innocent. All he wanted to do was read his books and be left alone...until someone threatens his life. Instead of retreating as he normally would - this time, he fights back...and he wins.
The moment defines him. He feels the seductive allure of power and suddenly, he realizes that with his intelligence and newfound viciousness...he can take the world, one man at a time. Within a few short years, he succeeds in the expulsion of a despised classmate, the murder of his suspicious father and the beginning of a powerful empire. The organization he builds and leads: Eclosion, explodes to alarming proportions and soon, Vincent is on his way to becoming a god among men.
But nothing stays perfect. On the brink of total victory, his life unravels. A sociopath gains power over his company through an accident of fate. A detective has begun an investigation against him, and the most disturbing of all - a mysterious messenger appears...warning him that in eight days, he will inevitably die.
Vincent has never come up against such opposition, but he's never been one to back down from a challenge either. The next eight days will test Vincent's every action and belief, resulting in consequences that will change his life, and everyone he has ever met, forever.
