Survival had become a way of life since Co-opComm first launched VADER. Thirteen years had passed, and yet, Abby remained . . . she and the others prevailed where many had surrendered. And died. Abby is tired. Tired of running and hiding. Tired of struggling, tired of fighting. Ultratron has a new secret weapon--a better, improved version. And the government-sponsored company has a new target, a more heinous plan. Traveling to Chicago, the heart of the current regime, they come face-to-face with a new threat--or is it? Who is this mysterious Riley, and what does she know about the St. Louis compound? And how? Shadowy inhabitants arise from the depths of the city, but are they friend . . . or foe? But Abby has only one objective: to defeat the government. Regardless of the cost.
