Evidence suggests that Man didn’t just evolve. Life was seeded by the Old Ones, an ancient nomadic species of bots, traveling through interstellar space around the galaxy. And the seeding didn’t work like they planned. Man is evolutionary mistake and the Old Ones are coming back to fix it. Colonel Johnny Winger leads his beleaguered nanotroopers into combat, on battlefields across the globe, around the solar system, and inside the world of atoms and molecules.
