The book is set in London in 2077, seven years after The X-Adults: Endgame: The Latest Threat and twenty-three years before The X-Adults: Endgame - Part 2, and features Anakin and Jay Organa as the main characters. D.I.T. Website tells us that Anakin and Jay have been recruiting followers since the 2030s, culminating with the only resistance able to control the chaos caused by the Knights of Meyer.
Template:Pquote The plot revolves around the Organa brothers, who have made a brief stop in London in December 2077, shortly after completing their travels around the world to find followers and create an organization for the Light side. What was meant to be a short interlude is prolonged when a Muggle called Jade Stokowski inadvertently disrupts the already decreasing stability of Asia. In the shadows, the Dark Flame, disguised as a public official named Olivia Alexandra Mary, is waiting for the time of revenge.
The book takes place over three days.
The book opens with a dark setting where a bunch of people are gathered. Then, there is a flash of light and the back of a mutant, later revealed to be the Dark Flame. Then, there is a montage of newspapers before we finally settle in London. We see Anakin and Jay Organa on a ship as it arrives, and they get off. Along with several students of theirs, alleged to be the Team of Terror (the successor to the Boy-Team) in whole, come to a gathering outside a bank, where Maggie Credence is ranting about the mutants. Jay bumps into Jade Stokowski, a Muggle who is trying to get a bank loan to open a bakery. Finally, they are picked up by Teryn Weber, who tries to take him in to the President, but no one listens.
Meanwhile, the Dark Flame (disguised as an employee named Olivia Alexandra Mary) manipulates Colby Credence, who he believes is a Squib, into helping him find the Obscurial with the promise of protecting and training him. It is implied that "Olivia" believes the mysterious attacks occurring in New York City are the work of a powerful Obscurial, which he feels will be a great asset for his plans. Olivia Mary leaves and finds Anakin and Jay, attempting to take them in.
Inside a hotel, Anakin and Jay teach their followers the basics until daybreak comes and they can finish their journey. However, when a Muggle by the name of Jade Stokowski stumbles upon them, they are attacked by a mysterious force. Anakin orders his new students to run and hide, and a skirmish ensues that ends with the Knights retreating. The Organa brothers are eluded to who they are, so Anakin agrees to get to the bottom of it. Using the Force to mask his presence, he follows the survivors and finds them rendezvousing with a mysterious figure in a cloak. He reports this to Jay, who decides they must intervene.
Upon waking up, Anakin realizes that the students have been captured. He wakes Jay in a panic and insists that they have to be found. Jay and Anakin split up, during which time Jay meets Kira Golberg, who agree to help.
Kira takes Jay and Jade to her house where they meet Reba, Tina's sister. We later see the Credences visit a town hall, where they meet Sebastian Jones Senior and his son, also named Sebastian Jones. Sebastian Senior waves them away.
Meanwhile, Anakin Organa, on the run from the Golbergs as well as the Ukranian government, finds a Nundu within an undisclosed park. After much difficulty, he captures it and it gives him directions. However, he is shocked to learn it belongs to Jay. Sebastian Junior, the New York senator, is killed by a dark force later revealed to be an Obscurial. Kira catches Jay, Anakin, and Colby, and goes to Selena Hickory. Selena captures the trio, believing them to be the cause of Shaw's death, and has them locked up. Mary orders them to be taken to a chamber to be killed, but they escape with the help of Queenie.
Mary goes to the orphanage, but Colby's powers manifest and Mary Lou is killed. The Dark Flame approaches Colby and has him track down his adoptive sister Maggie Credence, believing her to be the source of the Obscurial. Once they find Maggie, who happened to be with Anakin, the Dark Flame cruelly rejects Credence, who angrily reveals that he is the Obscurial. Surprised, the Dark Flame attempts to turn Colby and Anakin to the Dark side, but Colby escapes and wreaks havoc, despite Anakin's protests. Jay and Kira find him and try to calm him down, but he is killed on Selena's orders. Through Jay's Spinjitzu, Mary is revealed to be none other than the Dark Flame. He correctly deduces that the Team of Terror will have to be dealt with quickly, or else they can very well destroy him and his army.
With the Dark Flame defeated, Jay and Anakin return to America. Jacob opens a bakery with some of his products looking like the beasts he had met before. Queenie enters, and Jacob remembers the events he has been through.
