Gray has built a fantastic world in a 24th-century Montreal dystopia with two disparate individuals thrown together. This novella captures the imagination with some spicy sex and nonstop action. It's
fun sorting the bad guys from the good.

Genetically enhanced Troy is released from his hellish prison with orders to kidnap the leader of the Misborns. His assigned partner on the mission is Mercury, an Integer posing as a Misborn with special sight and knife-throwing skills.

Only the promise of a full pardon convinces Troy to take the assignment. Working with the gorgeous woman with a smart mouth is a bonus. His heightened olfactory sense reveals her attraction to him, and he responds accordingly. He's armed and prepared for anything -- except a reunion with an archenemy he thought destroyed long ago.
