Who knew that something lived in antique clocks? A group of long-lived people did. They had known for centuries. They also knew these beings could affect humans and worked to keep them from causing harm. Grant Stone, a clock shop owner, was one of these people. He had thought life with these clock dwellers predictable and boring until he had a visitor one evening. From that point, his life changed as he learned more about these beings, what they could do, and an evil that also affected one of his kind. Now, the world was faced with human and non-human enemies that wanted to destroy and disrupt mankind by altering the perception of time.
