In the three years since Project Dawn disbanded, Derrick continues to fight the good fight. Now civilians, his squad–Circe’s Recruits–works for a private organization bent on cleaning up the mess left in the wake of Project Dawn’s rebirth. Pearson Labs continues to create Circs, people who have been genetically changed. When needed, these Circs take on an altered form, one neither man nor animal, but something in between. But unlike the squad, the Circs coming out of Pearson Labs aren’t sane.
Derrick doesn’t trust Sabrina Torrence. She’s an agent for the Project Protection Agency. Their mission in life is to kill and enslave Circs for Pearson Labs. No matter that she helped one of their own escape from the labs, or that she’s given them vital information they’ll need if they want to take down Elliot Pearl, the labs’ founder. Derrick knows she’s got her own agenda. If only she wasn’t so damned attractive, then he might be able to keep his hands off her and his mind on the job. Then a stunning circumstance forces him to reevaluate all he once thought. But will this new insight be too late to save their growing love?
