Chambers thinks she can live the rest of her life blissfully with Ben as her guardian then she has another thing coming. Firstly the military led by General Garland want her for the good of the country in their fight against terrorism and see her power to see the past as a major benefit.
Hindsight was a lot faster pace than the original in the series Diamond Eyes. There was just so much going on with Mira in pursuit of the captured Ben. Gun battles a plenty, Mira struggling with her feelings for Ben and her body guard Lockman who also falls for her. Mira is meeting more new people than ever before and building friendships, slowly as the trust is given a chance to grow.
