Publisher's Summary

He's Code Blue when brought into the ER: a young drifter who wandered in from the desert, who was attacked for mundane reasons, and who broke his own hands on his attackers' faces and lacerated them with the jagged bones.

His name is Clay Palmer, and he's one of the rarest people on earth... the carrier of a genetic mutation with frightening implications for humanity.

With the time ticking on his self-control, Clay wages a desperate struggle to understand what has gone so wrong, with the help of psychologist Adrienne Rand and her anthropologist lover, Sarah.

It's a struggle that takes them from the desert to the mountains, into the tribal subculture of Clay's friends, and on a cross-country odyssey through a frozen landscape corroded with industrial blight, toward the other claimant for Clay's soul: A man who has spent a lifetime spreading chaos and destruction in the world. A man who is more like him than not. A man who wants sons and daughters....

Even if he has to breed them himself.

    "Not worth it."

    Looked interesting so I picked this one up and wow and not in a good way. Most of this book felt like reading a psychological report paired with a narrator that sounds like he’s giving a lecture didn’t hold the imagination. Normally I get in to the characters in story but as for Clay I never felt more annoyed, as some one with a disorder I never felt more like yelling “grow a set” while listening. He’s nothing but a whiney self destructive self absorbed crybaby, and if he’s the pillar of strength of his group of friends no wonder there all messed up. This book had a few points it could have really taken off but author seemed determined to earthbound with a little hop at the very end.
