AD 2040: Barely eighteen, things have become much harder for Elliott. Reeling from the losses during the confrontation that brought Project Alexandria to a halt, Elliott feverishly hunts for the original files needed to finish it off. Finding only dead ends, he instead stumbles upon something dire: messages about the Babel Initiative. Conceived as a successor that would make Project Alexandria’s manipulations seem tame, this new threat once again forces Elliott into alliances with morally grey programmers known as Siegers. Beset by continual setbacks and defeats, many Siegers abandon the cause and go underground to survive the dangers ahead. The bleak reality that Elliott and those closest to him are almost certain to die in the fight against Dr. Almundson begins to set in. But Elliott isn’t ready to give up. He knows the cost of such a silent surrender will be humanity itself.

Excerpt: “That’s too bad,” Elliott mumbled.
“Yeah. At least we all got linked up again,” John said, giving Elliott a gentle shoulder jab.
A light flashed on the console in the area usually used to indicate a weak network
connection. Frowning, Elliott tapped on the console, and a second later the entire display flashed
“Um, that’s not supposed to happen,” he said, looking at John for support.
“Hey, don’t look at me. This tech stuff is your specialty.”
There was a bright flash from the console, and then the display was back on. In the
middle was a hooded figure shown from the shoulders up with the conventional display being
warped around it. Where a face should be, there was a void, and the poignant notes of
Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata” played faintly over the car’s speakers.
The wraith-like figure spoke in a heavily distorted voice. “Dangerous conceits are in
their nature’s poisons, which at the first are scarce found to distaste, but with a little act upon the
blood, burn like the mines of sulfur …”
For several seconds all Elliott could do was sit there, every muscle stunned into paralysis.
Before he dared take a breath, the console flashed again, and the mysterious figure was gone.
“What was that?” John asked at a whisper.
“I have no idea.”
“What on earth was all that gibberish about ‘conceits’ and ‘sulfur’?”
Elliott shrugged. “I think it was from a Shakespearean play,, but I’m not sure which one. I
feel like I remember, but I can’t place it.”
“Weird,” John summarized, his brow furrowed, but more in deep thought than

The icy freeze on Elliott’s limbs gradually thawed, and he reached out and tapped on the
console’s display. “Whoever it was didn’t leave any records behind to trace back to them. The
car’s logs are clear of it.”
