Jude Asher first called on outside forces to change his destiny as a child. Now a wealthy entrepreneur with his star soaring, he's prepared to make his most daring bet ever to reach the pinnacle of earthly power. Jude's twin brother, Thomas, has chosen a different path as a reporter for The New York Times. As much as he's tried to cut himself off from his brother's trajectory, he finds himself drawn back in ... and troubled by the secret that only he knows.
Surrounded by principalities and powers, each brother must choose their own path—for good or for evil.
This was a very different book than I've ever read before. Jude and Thomas are twins that are in the foster system until they're 17. Thanks to Jude they're adopted by a wealthy couple and their lives are forever changed. They become wealthy beyond all their dreams. The wealth they inherit is never enough for Jude and he goes on to become the wealthiest man alive. Thomas on the other had still works and doesn't have any desire to have more money. Yes he enjoys what he has and can do with the money but he doesn't live for it like Jude. Money isn't the only thing Jude can control.
