Grace's nine-year-old son, Jordan, is dying. . . .
First, the Metagenesis disease will tear his soul from his body, and then it will kill him. Desperate for a cure, Grace agrees to take part in an illegal clinical trial cloning souls. Supported by her best friend Kay, the two embark on the ultimate "Vegas Vacation" to the past in search of the right soul to clone, racing against time to save Jordan's life.
But someone is trying to stop them and when they discover why, Grace must make a choice: let her son die or kill her husband. If she kills her husband, she triggers widespread Metagenesis, sealing the fate of the human race with a new plague.
Humanity is counting on Grace choosing to let her son die.

this was such a good time-traveling thriller, I was hooked on the plot and the world. The characters worked so well in this universe and I wanted them to succeed. I enjoyed the way Raquel Rich wrote this and I'm glad I was able to read this. I can't wait to read the sequel.
"You let our friendship dwindle away, too. So why were you so willing to drop everything and risk your life to travel with me across space and time, when you wouldn’t even stop by my home to try and talk to me when I stopped coming to the casino?” I couldn’t put my finger on what it had been that was making me question her motives until now. Her hinting that her intentions were not as pure as she’s been letting on all this time has finally given me the guts to face my hesitation about her."
