Hunter is crushed by guilt. He and his family are driven across the solar system to an isolated research settlement and forced to recreate the killer nanomachines. Logan’s daughter is taken hostage and enemies infiltrate his team. The stakes can’t be higher as Hunter Logan struggles to find his daughter and stop his deadly creation that threatens the world.

The book itself is not bad. It has good charater development and a plausible storyline that keeps you interested.
In some cases, you question some of the character's loyality and wonder who's side they are really on. You get to really feel what it's like to be between a rock (Meridian Corporation who want the technology at all costs) and a hard place (Citizens League who want to destroy the technology and everyone associated with it at all cost) and feeling the guilts and pressures of trying to do the right thing while simultaneously trying to protecting the ones you love.
The only problem I have with the book is the narration. Don't get me wrong. The sound effects and the background noises added to the overall experience of the book. It just took me a while to get use to the narrator and his reading of the book. In some parts, the reading didn't coincide with feel of the situation or the moods of the characters.
Regardless of my opininated thoughts, it's a good book and leads the way for the next book. I am very interested to see what happens next in this universe Dan Moore has created.
Dan Moore should not be allowed near a microphone. A prime example is the sex scene in the early in this book. The words are provoking, but his narration is like a high school science teacher talking about cell division.
Dan Moore ruins his own book.
