In the three years since Project Dawn disbanded, Hale 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.
Hale’s dreams are more than nightmares–the prophetic doom of a beautiful woman he doesn’t know and a man he wishes he’d never met: two people meant for him that are too involved with his enemy for Hale’s peace of mind. But the heart wants what the heart wants, and Hale’s beast won’t accept less than the woman and man destined to become his mates. Then word arrives that Pearson Labs is finally coming down, and Hale has to race to save his mates from the fallout. Can they survive or will their love crumble under the enemy’s chaos and deception too close to home?
