Among the Transforms, Carol Hancock is one of only three Arms. Reluctantly resigned to the Commander title, Carol organizes her allies to fight the Hunter Chimeras and their secret Crow Master, Wandering Shade. She must contend with her boss, the Arm Stacy Keaton – who demands more from Carol than Carol can deliver; her reluctant allies – some of whom do not even admit to the existence of the Hunters, active traitors within the ranks, and spies. The identity of Wandering Shade and his goals remain the last unanswered mysteries. Uncovering the answers to these will confound Carol and her allies, and cause dissention and weakness in a time where they cannot afford any – the time for the final confrontation with Wandering Shade.
