They discover that
their friend and mentor, Dr. Gregorian, is part of a secret society called the
Order of Time. It turns out that time is not fixed, it’s a fluid continuum
where changes to the past can create ripples all the way through to the
present. It unwittingly falls to the twins to travel back through time to
ancient Egypt where they must overcome deadly assassins, evil high priests and
vengeful gods in order to prevent disaster. Together Anastasia and Edward must
navigate all obstacles to preserve the past and find their way back home.
