In the middle of the 17th century, a prominent ecclesiastical leader is sentenced to exile. The Venetian mirror that was used to prophesy his political downfall reappears centuries later in Andrew Serov’s family and leads to a series of mysterious events. Andrew joins a firm engaged in a project to control human consciousness. Two of his colleagues share with him the breathtaking mirror stories of their own. Deciphering the stunning connections between the events of their early lives, the team builds Capsoul—feats of neuroscience. The new device could help millions of people; it could also help Andrew to shed light on the great riddle of his life. The company’s owner, however, has his own plans for the Capsoul.
