Something sinister is going on in the catacombs of Duram University. A student is about to find himself part of a new technological leap into a future in which morals are tested against humanity’s growing desire for power—to regenerate, to control the aging process, and to kill—an all-out underground war with both sides willing to risk everything for dominance over the other. Both seeking the ultimate weapon, both seeking a man who doesn’t know who or what he really is. . . . And for Brenner James, the unwitting participant, it will take everything he is to save not only himself, but all those he loves from this underground experiment gone horribly wrong.
