Three years on from the birthday party that left him crippled for life, Shadow is well on the way to wrecking what’s left of himself. Just as he’s finally getting his life back on track, an unexpected visitor turns up at Shadow’s home, with a new idea about how to get his body restored.
Everything comes at a price though, and the elusive Blake Stanford’s price is a little more than Shadow bargained for. His deal with the devil leaves him on the wrong side of the world’s most powerful organization: the Seeker’s Council.
With the Seeker’s Council on his back, a nosy journalist who won’t stay out of his personal life, and a crime boss who will stop at nothing to gain his allegiance for her own shady purposes, Shadow is running low on allies. Friend and doctor Kit Calloway is still on his side, but keeping Shadow alive might just cost him more than his career this time.
Especially if the world’s most powerful Seekers discover Shadow’s true identity. Or the three tubes of Liquid Talent he once buried deep in a forest, and promised never to dig up unless lives depended on the secrets inside them...
