This time it's with his friends, but something is amiss. Not everything is at it seems, and no one has found Gin Sonny...yet. Gin must test himself against any and all who beat him. He needs a new device to track down and help destroy one of the victims who got away. Will anyone realize that Gin hasn't left Earth? Will Kaiden understand what is different about this test he is undergoing?
Kaiden might be a genius when it comes to destruction, but the other side has the greatest warship on the planet. It's about even. Kaiden, plus the rest of the academy students and faculty, are working to take down the AO's greatest threat: the City-Killer. Will they be able to destroy the ship that forced them from their homes? If they do, what will be the cost?
He was in a gang but was trying to change his future, when a board member of the elite advanced academy NEXUS made a snap decision and offered him a chance. Then fate, or an unbalanced genius, offered him another. The Nexus Academy is for the elite trainees from Earth, and now trials from our alien allies, as they teach the future generation how to fight, lead, hack, spy, and many other talents and tactics. Hired by companies, governments, and NGOs, these graduates work to pay off the massive debt their training at the academy accumulates.
It is time for Kaiden to grow up a little and play with a larger team to accomplish a three-peat. The only problem? The test has been engineered to kill the players. What's a little blood between friends? Who is Kaiden going to be teamed with? Which faculty will be betting on that team? Will it be Sasha, or will someone yank his best opportunity away from him? Exactly what will Sasha do to acquire the team to beat? Finally, can Kaiden accomplish something only hinted about the history of the Nexus Academy? You don't become the best of the best by staying alive.
Gin Sonny is coming. It's personal. It's the end game. No one sees Gin's plans, which is what has made him one of the most successful killers Earth has conceived. Now Kaiden will find out if his friends, teachers, and the support staff are capable of stopping the killer from leaving him braindead. Sometimes you don’t come out of the Animus alive. Will Kaiden and Chief be able to figure a place to hide when the Animus itself is the killing weapon?
Who is he going to work with, and will that partner be able to handle him...including his (shall we say) slightly inflated ego of himself? Even if that ego is deserved, just a little? Chief is learning to be a little more supportive, except when Chief of Security Wulfson decides a few students deserve a little more intense training. With all of the additional injuries Kaiden suffers in his extra-curricular training, will he succumb to the blue goop pain killer?
Kaiden Jericho's life just went sideways. He has been working odd jobs since the first school year ended. (People have to eat, right?) The problem? He isn't as prepared as he thinks he is. Out in the jungles of the Amazon, Kaiden meets a new set of nightmares, and death there is permanent. Even with all his previous training in the Animus, will Kaiden survive? You don't become the best of the best by staying alive. In the Animus, you are closer to perfection with each death you suffer. Kaiden Jericho would rather skip the death part, thank you very much.
The AO have come out of hiding, and war is upon the Ark Academy. People are going to die, because war isn’t pretty. This time, there will be no reset after dying. The Animus better have prepared the students, because the gloves are off, and it is student against student, academy against academy, with the future of humanity on the line.
Kaiden Jericho would rather skip the death part, thank you very much. He wants a little information and perhaps a little payback. He has some information on where an AO stronghold is located. He will need to retrieve vital proof to help get the council to believe the ghost-like organization exists. But can he get the support he needs to make a run at it? Before long, it becomes obvious this isn't a small outpost; more like a major outpost with a lot of support. Kaiden can't wing this operation.
This madness is going to end one way or another. If Kaiden has his way, it will end violently, with his hands around the neck of the one who killed his friend. AO has pushed to the extreme, now the Academy students are making a difference. Will they be in time? It’s the final do-or-die engagements to bring this war to a conclusion. Will Kaiden’s friends be able to win all the battles so they can push through the final defenses?
Chiyo's father's company is being targeted, and she considers her options. Should she help him? The only problem? There is a dark enemy on the other side who wants her dad's company and wouldn't mind taking a bite out of Kaiden, either. Chief is more integrated than he was before and far more fragile due to his neural link with Kaiden. Kaiden and Chiyo been provided a job opportunity, but they will need extra support. Will they be able to call on their friends, or will they need to hire contractors?
The third-year students are about to take on those who know them best. Each other. Using a variation of the classic game of Capture the Flag, Kaiden and his friends must join teams and battle each other. It is time for Kaiden to learn what it means to lead. Then, when they are out on the town, an opportunity is handed to the students on a silver platter. Kaiden has a job offer to help protect a business in San Diego, but he needs more members. Will the students join him?
