Convinced that Kira Walker is the key to solving the Partials experation date, Doctor Morgan, leader of one of the Partials factions leads an assault on the last human community on Earth, capturing their entire island and taking every human that can be found prisoner. She demands that Kira, who has disappeared, give herself up, executing one hostage a day to draw her out.
Meanwhile, Marcus, Kira's one-time future husband, organizes a peace envoy to another Partials faction to gain aid in fighting Morgan's troops on the island. Whilst he sues for peace and alliance, walking right into the figurative lion's den, hidden forces of the human Defence Grid make guerilla attacks upon the Partials occupation forces, and try to salvage a nuclear warhead from the wreckage of the last human fleet that the Partials destroyed.
Kira, Samm, and one of his friends that defected with him named Heron, set out west to find the Trust, those who lead the Partials, and may just have been the scientists that created them in the first place. Their goal is to obtain both the cure for the RM virus that kills any and all human children born, and to remove the Partials expiration date. Without the Partials, the human population will die out in a single generation. Without the Humans, the Partials may never find a cure for their own expiration dates. Each group cannot survive without the help of the other, and yet they are locked together in war. It is Kira's hope that investigating the headquarters of Paragen in Denver she can find the solution to the problem, save BOTH sides, and stop the war once and for all. Upon reaching Denver, they find another community of humans that have survived the end of the world, living in the shadow of the old Paragen headquarters. It seems a paradise where one of the Trust has created a vaccine against RM, and children are born without fear of it. Kira is overwhelmed, knowing that she has found what she is looking for. But under the surface there may be something far more sinister at work, and the purpose for her own existence may be called into question.
