Description

When actress Emma Sloan is trapped under a burning set, she knows her life is over. Even if she survives, she will be too badly scarred to work again. She is horrified to wake in a hospital and find her body covered in crawling, mottled stuff that has taken the place of her burned skin. The bio-engineered organism may have saved her life, but its appearance is so repulsive Emma can never appear on a holo-stage again. The doctors might as well have let her die. In the depths of her rage and despair, the doctors tell her that among the skin's metamorphic traits is the ability to restore Emma's original appearance. However, none of the human hosts implanted before her have been able to discover how. Before Emma can even begin to learn, the other hosts attack the hospital staff and break out of the high-security wing. Emma has a choice: help recapture the missing symbionts, or be killed by a government agency terrified of the creatures they have let loose. Colonel Nick Archer, the special ops officer in charge of the recovery knows sooner or later he will be ordered to destroy Emma, the one remaining symbiont in captivity. Can he kill the woman he is coming to love, or will the two of them find a way to save the missing hosts?show more
