The Great Reawakening has left Latent people with a stark choice: either use their newfound magical powers in the service of the government, or choose the path of the Selfer, and be hunted down and killed by the Supernatural Operations Corps.
For Lieutenant Colonel Jan Thorsson - call sign Harlequin - the SOC is the closest thing to family he's ever known.
But when his efforts to save thousands of soldiers leads to the impeachment of the President, he's suddenly cut off from the military and in the same position as his rival Oscar Britton, an outcast criminal who is leading the fight for Latent equality. This latest schism is perfect for the walking weapon known as Scylla, who is slowly but surely building a vast and terrible army.
The Selfers and the SOC will have to learn to work together if they are to have any chance of preventing a massacre. Because this time they won't be facing her on a dusty battlefield far from home.
This time, Scylla is bringing the fight to the streets of New York.
