Kam's first trip outside the Shield ends in a catastrophic Rizom attack. And though some of the guild members are saved by a mysterious red light, in their escape the sword that is not a sword goes undelivered.
When Batsuo returns to search the site all he finds is the monstrous transformation of a former guard and Kam. Kam was not bitten, but he, too, has been changed... by a secret that could herald the salvation or destruction of all humankind.
