Spring comes to the mutant clans. Now, the mutants begin to emerge from their long, hidden sleep. Slowly, quietly, they have slipped into the paths of ordinary life and become caught up in the everyday problems that face all of us, mutant or normal. One career is stalled. Another is threatened by the political need for a scapegoat. The clan must come together again.
Michael, trapped in a loveless marriage and facing the blame for a disaster in which he had no part.
Melanie, separated from clan and family, fighting to prove her worth in the world of normals.
Narlydda, using her fame and wealth as a blind for her mutant identity, trapped in an age of luxury.
Now, from nowhere comes a man who thrusts himself into all their lives - a man who might change the world. Is Victor Ashman the long-awaited, long-sought supermutant - the Mutant Prime? Before his frightening powers can turn the normal world against them all, the clan must find him, identify him, and - if necessary - stop him.
