Treachery and despair rule the world created as a safe haven for the survivors of W.W.IV. Children get abducted from their families only moments after birth. Their bodies are subjected to hideous scientific experiments that reconstruct their DNA, making them shells of their former selves. Only a few of them remain capable of human skills, and among them is Xavier Shadowheart who has been given the task of apprehending a young doctor who has blindly taken the mutated creatures into her own hands. Will Shayda Rivera be able to cure these poor souls, or will Xavier unintentionally hand her over to a murderer?
