At the end of his 11th life, Harry August has a visitor from the future, asking him to save the world.

Harry August lives a seemingly endless cycle of life, death and rebirth. After each death, he is reborn right where he started, with the memories of all his previous lives. He, along with his fellow kalachakras, live their lives over and over again, doing their best not to cause any major changes in history along the way.

When a rogue kalachakra begins changing the past – and bringing the end of the world closer and closer with every cycle of their life, it is up to Harry to stop them. As his fellow kalachakra disappear around him, Harry must go back through lifetimes worth of memories to figure out who is doing this and why.

The novel’s intriguing structure, combined with the author’s lyrical prose, present a thought-provoking story about knowledge, ethics, fate, and friendship.
