This book invites its readers to a journey into one man’s life. There were obivous themes that appeared throughout the book such as power and more of cruelty.

This story is about two twin brothers, Marion and Shiva Stone Their parents were not very much a big influence in their child hood because their mother passed away at child birth and of their father’s disappearance. I can't believe these two twin brothers would be going through this much in their childhood. I can't imagine how they were feeling at that time. I know that I won't be able to support myself without parents at such a young age. The twins tried to make "something out of their lives" by attending medical school and deepening their fascination in medical fields.
