|Plot Summary of Sub Specie Aeternitatis|
A man has been stripped of his identity... he thinks he is someone else. The story is the process of his finding out who he is - a biogenetically engineered individual with great mental and physical powers who was created far in the future. He and his brothers and sister must face a powerful evil enemy who feeds on anger and negative emotions. In order to do that, they have trained a group of people in many forms of combat. The final battle is held in a dream=like setting and the hero discovers a horrid truth about himself. Light but strong romantic overtones and a passionate description.
