Greyson Hirsch has carved a bloody path of destruction across America in his war against superheroes. Fully embracing the villainous persona of Damocles, he now dedicates himself to ridding the world of these “false messiahs.”
His next target is San Miguel’s own Aegis, known to friends and family as Hugo Malalou. By slaughtering Aegis and his team of Paragons, Damocles hopes to crush the symbolic face of this new generation of heroes.
Hugo is equally motivated to stopping Damocles’s reign of terror, bringing him closer to a shadowy powerbroker hellbent on burning the current world order to ashes. But Hugo’s efforts are derailed when a close friend is corrupted by an ancient evil that could plunge San Miguel and beyond into nightmarish chaos.
Now he is forced to make an impossible choice—stop Damocles or save his friend's life. The only option this young hero has is to roll the dice, causing destructive consequences no matter what he chooses.
This novel contains potty-mouthed teens, super-on-super violence and brain-melting superhero action.
