“ … you must realise and accept, neither me, your mum, nor either of you are human.”
Nick and Mel are 14 year old twins living normal lives with their parents. When they discover an ancient book in their attic and read from it, strange events begin to happen around them. Something has been awakened which prompts their parents to take them away to a town called Midway where they reveal to the twins that they are not human. They had been hidden on Earth, brought up as though they were human, awaiting the right moment for the truth to be told.
When their parents mysteriously disappear on their first night away, they are forced to discover for themselves what their roles are in the new lives they’ve been thrown into. They struggle alone as they try to understand and balance their past human lives with their alien destiny. When the book they discovered at their home is stolen, it falls on the twins to recover it. The book has a lot more power than they realised, and if they fail, it will not be they who suffer, but the whole human race.
Along the way, they meet an array of characters, some will become friends, some will become enemies, who can they trust? For now, they can trust only each other.

Mel looked to her right and saw some large rocks a little way down the hill. There seemed to be a gap cut into the hillside and a pathway made.
Celeste saw her looking. “You have seen something of interest to you, Melandra?”
“It’s just where those rocks are, does it lead to something? Is there a cave there?”
Celeste walked in front of them and led the way moving gracefully towards the mysterious rock strewn pathway. “Come,” she invited.
The twins followed her along the path towards the large rocks and discovered a huge hollow had been dug into the hillside. Partially undercover, the cavity had been strengthened with walls and a ceiling of stone making it appear as a vast, open, dome-shaped cavern carved out of the terrain. They were struck by the remarkable structures that stood tall and still within the expanse; there were twelve sets of stones of varying heights arranged in a rough circle with a stone slab in the centre raised up on a chunky column like a table. Each of the individual structures forming the circle were set up like doorways made up of two tall, sturdy, upright slabs with enough gap between for a person to pass through. Above each pair was a horizontal cross piece that connected the two to complete the doorway appearance. Flat on the ground beneath each set was a stone on which the structure stood. Some of the sets were raised above the ground on platforms with as many as ten stone steps leading up to them.
“It looks a bit like Stonehenge,” Mel observed.
“There are many similar stone arrangements on Earth built by our people for similar use to these. They have largely remained inactive these last few hundred years.”
“Inactive?” Nick was curious. “What did they do when they were active?”
“They acted as portals. The structures you see before you are known to us as the stone portals; each one a gateway to the world below, and are very much active.”
When Sebastian, the brother of their friend Celeste is abducted by the rogue faction known as The Malum-Atra, twins Nicholas and Melandra Wigg are first in the queue to help the Shreen Angels in their quest to find and rescue the unfortunate victim.
