Prologue –


Brice couldn’t believe this was happening. In no time flat he had gone from hero to zero. Caught twice, bitten but not infected, and handcuffed by god knows who. Actually his body armor sort of reminded him of the movie Blade… Only this guy wasn’t black, he was Asian and something else mixed together.

“Brice, Don’t know if we’ll ever meet again after I drop you off at the armory, but I want you to know, this is m...
