The time is right for introducing the world to the marvels of techno-medical advancements. An influential man, one loved and adored, is needed for the job. Chase Sterling, host of the popular show, Change Your Life, is forced into the role after suffering injuries no one could survive. But no one’s ever been rebuilt like Chase.
In the not-too-distant future, a man—
if he can still be called a man—
escapes the forces that have taken over his life.
In the near future, fugitive Chase Sterling evades the transhuman life his creators intended him to lead. He connects with the Underground Church, confident his enhanced strength and intelligence make him the perfect guardian for those forced into a strange and secret existence. What could possibly go wrong?
His unimpressed bodyguard is out to get him, his affection for a certain young woman may not be mutual, and a deceitful recruit accompanies Chase on a rescue mission . . . with plans to kidnap him. The leader of the underground is dying and the government is closing in.
The super powers Chase relies on are switched off by an enemy he thought he had escaped. It’s enough to make a transhuman give up. Will he find the courage to keep going before all humanity is lost?
Held captive in the frozen wilderness, transhuman Chase Sterling almost loses faith that he’ll ever be reunited with his bride and with the persecuted souls he’s promised to guard. His escape leads to even greater struggles and discoveries about his own abilities.
At last, he arrives at the unusual location his people have chosen as a hiding place. And then things get complicated. His wife’s been kidnapped and the underground faces annihilation. Victory and heartbreak build Chase’s resolve, until he is forced to face his worst fear.
Now he must choose whether to sacrifice himself. He’s endured so much since they transformed him into the world’s first transhuman, but will he survive the final transfusion?
