Will doesn’t need the trouble Meara causes, but maybe he does need her.
For Captain William Talon, aka William 874, there aren’t many choices left. Whoever captured him after the war kept him out of the Cyber Husband program and instead turned him into a killing machine—a worse one than most cyborgs.
Will has no idea how many deaths are on his hands nor does he want to know. The few incidents he recalls are bad enough. But now it has come to this… Kyra and Peyton need a better cyborg than their mysterious Creator Omega enemy is making.
Will’s processor is dying daily which means the rest of him will die soon as well. An upgrade of the kind Kyra's talking about will either improve his entire existence… or kill him completely. Ironically, Will really doesn't care which. He’d have taken his own life years ago if he could have gotten around the daily brainwashing.
His losses are massive. Like many other cyber soldiers, they include the loss of a family who is convinced he's a prime example of walking evil.
His gains since Peyton rescued him? Really there's only one—just one annoying, endlessly chattering, red-haired troublemaker who's volunteered to be upgraded as well. Now they're cybernetically married, or at least they are in Meara’s warped mind.
What's he supposed to do with a female cyborg partner who has no boundaries?
And what's he supposed to do with the first hope he’s felt in years?
