Sometimes things are simple: you either win or lose. And Edward is determined not to lose. It's time for the Twins to put into practice all the skills they've acquired at the Project and pit their wits against the formidable Captain Banks. But as Edward's methods become more callous, Emma finds herself becoming emotionally entangled in the world of Cal's friends, Selina and Shrew. A barrier has come between Emma and Edward, a distance that once would have been unthinkable. And if that wasn't bad enough, an ex-Project soldier called Joe Gradenko is about to turn their world upside down.
