THE NEWBIE: The terrorists have taken from everyone, including Layla. First her country, her freedom, her parents, and now this? Full of rage and aggression, she’s ready to fight back against the Black Sun, but Layla begins to realize that it’s going to take more than a thirst for revenge to win this war.
THE LEADER: Jax was among the first hybrid soldiers created, but ten months into his service as a member of the Hybrid Force, he finds himself faced with one new challenge after another. With a new troubled hybrid on his team, the ever-present threat of the Black Sun, and lost friends once again returned, Jax’s role as Team Thirteen’s leader might collapse around him.
SECOND IN COMMAND: Living the last four years of his life in the heart of the terrorist’s territory, Kyrin has seen the worst of these people. He tried to stay out of the war, but people like him aren’t given that choice. You don’t just sign up to join the Hybrid Force. They’ll find you, chase you down if they have to. It makes sense that he’d be picked for a team, that he’d become second in command, and that he’d fall for his team leader. What doesn’t make sense is practically everything else.
THE SECRET WEAPON: When it was Celia’s time to be selected for the Hybrid Force, she was grateful for the chance to get away from her controlled life. She was ready to create chaos, to do something important, to be free from her parents. But she never anticipated how difficult each day as a soldier is, how much discipline and effort it took. It’s a good thing her parents, no mater how controlling, made sure she knew what hard work really means. And it’s a good thing that her leader lets her keep a coffee maker on their housing floor, because, with their newbie, they’re all going to need it.
THE CONTROL: It took him being injected with the hybrid serum to learn what control really is. Between the constant onslaught of enhanced senses, rigid training, and missions, Mick found his place. As a member of Team Thirteen, he feels settled even when the rest of the country is mayhem. But he’s only been with the Hybrid Force for a month, and his role in the war is only just beginning.
