After creating the perfect Artificial Intelligence Morpher, Cam is running for his life. But the McCarthys are everywhere, and see everyone.
One year after quitting the Canadian Scanning Tournament and the death of his daughter, Cam Tylar is ready. When Artificial Intelligence Morphers (AIMs) were created twenty years earlier, the scientists found a dangerous flaw in the substance and chip coding which allowed AIMs to become animalistic. Underground scientists finally created a chip which will always remain under Asimov's laws, and Cam has successfully trained it.
But the founders of Scanning, the McCarthys, are not happy. If the public found out they were selling potentially dangerous AIMs it would ruin the sport, Scanning, and their reputation.
After resigning from Revolution, Maria Kier joined the Canadian Army as an AIM Operations Technician. Following an attempt on her life she sought out Cam for answers, not knowing he was looking for the same thing.
Now Cam and the Underground must find a way to bring the new AIM into the mainstream, and keep their lives, while Maria uses her connections in the military in an attempt to finally bring down the McCarthys.
