It is here that beautiful UMCP cop Morn Hyland is about to be traded to the Amnion by the buccaneer Nick Succorso - an act of profiteering and revenge that pushes his crew to mutiny. Now Nick's survival depends on
  • retrieving Morn's sixteen-year-old son "force-grown" by the Amnion, a boy struggling to gain his identity. To accomplish the rescue, Nick must turn to his mortal enemy Angus Thermopyle.

In A Dark and Hungry God Arises, nothing is as it seems. As schemes unravel to reveal yet deeper schemes, the lives of Morn, Nick, and Angus may all be forfeit as pawns in the titanic game played out between Warden Dios,
