For a mil­len­nium, magic has been Latent in the world. Now, with the Great Reawak­en­ing, peo­ple are “com­ing up Latent,” man­i­fest­ing dan­ger­ous mag­i­cal abil­i­ties they often can­not con­trol. In response, the mil­i­tary estab­lishes the Super­nat­ural Oper­a­tions Corps (SOC), a deadly band of sor­cer­ers ded­i­cated to hunt­ing down “Self­ers” who use magic out­side gov­ern­ment con­trol.

When army offi­cer Oscar Brit­ton comes up Latent with a rare and pro­hib­ited power, his life turns upside down. Trans­formed overnight from gov­ern­ment agent to pub­lic enemy num­ber one, his attempt to stay alive and evade his for­mer friends dri­ves him into a shadow world he never knew lurked just below the sur­face of the one he’s always lived in. He’s about to learn that magic has changed all the rules he’s ever known, and that his life isn’t the only thing he’s fight­ing for.
