Kyle is united with Red but not without paying the ultimate price. One of the robo-pack's own, C0M3T, takes a fatal spear straight to her core processor. Now with Kyle's father Hank and the rest of the Colony's search party gathering on the outskirts of the Kira camp that enslaved Kyle and Red, the planet Kirawan is on the brink of a full scale civil war. The worlds of Humankind and Alienkind are set to collide in an epic battle that can destroy both. And the only thing that can stop it may be a boy and his dog. A boy who is forced to become a man...and something more.
