Lionel Changer is a true revolutionary. With his company, Implantus, he fused technology and biology with the sole goal of helping mankind. He's also a human supremacist.

He creates the Human Organization Reestablishing Untainted Society, or HORUS. Their goal is to bring humanity to the next echelon, above their animal peers. However, to the United Species Alliance, Changer is a genetic criminal and HORUS is the group that created the halfkind monstrosities. The Alliance has sent an elite team to exterminate Changer's rogue faction. The mission won't end until everything is burned to the ground.

Meanwhile, the survivors of Operation Halfkinds live peacefully in the North American wilderness. Yet, through a series of unfortunate circumstances, they find themselves sucked into this madness once more.

What separates the Halfkinds series from the rest isn't only its unique premise, but also its structure. Chapters shift between the first person POV's of key characters and are presented in a non-linear fashion in order to create a mounting suspense that will keep the reader riveted until the end. Various plot twists occur within the story, and the different character viewpoints help alter the tone as you go along to give an unbiased presentation of their motives and actions. The setting allows a diverse cast of characters, some human, many not, to send a message that intelligence is a power that we take for granted, and when given to other species, the world becomes a dangerous place.
