Ben's an easy-going people person with a healthy skepticism about the paranormal. Mina's a dangerously obsessive monster-hunter with a crippling fear of betrayal. Together, they're all that stands between the small town of Prospero and its insidious, shape-shifting invaders.
After their escape from the Splinter Warehouse last summer, Ben and Mina are forced to face their town's shapeshifting invaders on the most treacherous of battlefields -- high school. New breeds of Splinter are surfacing, with powers they've never seen before, and they've set their sights squarely on the rebel pair's friendship.
Mina and Ben's resistance Network has managed to sustain an uneasy truce with the Splinters for several months, for the purpose of stopping the far more dangerous Slivers. They've got rescuing innocent humans down to a science, but does that mean there might be room in their lives for a little normal teenage fun?
Prospero is on lockdown. The Sliver Queen’s forces are massacring the few humans who remain. Ben is missing, and Mina’s starting to worry that there might be nothing she wouldn’t risk to get him back. In this long-awaited final chronicle, she’ll get one last chance to fight for her species, deciding in the process what her life, her friends, and her planet are worth.
