Short Synopsis

Picking up right after the end of book one, Emile and Alpha Squadron must now deal with the new world they are thrown into. with the first hybrid in the hands on the enemy and their existence made public, they must learn to cope and deal with their new jobs. Max does his best to lead his team of misfits who are now down their XO. Civilian pressures are high now that they know of "superhumans" amongst their midst. Emile now leads all special forces and covert ops, his cover for managing the Archetype task force which he co-leads with Max.

Their job is to investigate cases that are cause for concern, neutralise targets that cannot be converted, and recruit those they can to their cause. However, their first priority is to fix their own problems before they can ge the show on the road.

Chief Inspector Ricardo is back to make extra work for the military as the civilian authority in place to determine what exactly lead to the death of eighty percent of the West's command staff, he is out for blood, Emile's blood, and will stop at nothing to bring his man to justice.

The fate of Diangello remains uncertain, as does Lucy's.

About the Author

Devon Steiger
Devon Steiger

I am an undergraduate student at Concordia University studying English Literature & Professional Writing. I started writing in 2006 as a kid, and in 2008 started writing more seriously. Though none of the works writtenback then have ever seen the light of day, in 2010 I undertook writing a complete book for my IB personal project in high school. Five years later, that project has been placed on the shelf and in 2012, after two NaNoWriMo attempts, I released my first published work Archetypes: State of Play. Over the past three years I have focused mainly on my Academic career as that has been my priority, but as I am nearing the midway point of university I am becoming more and more serious about writing.

Since I launched Archetypes I have worked on several projects that are coming to fruition, including the upcoming Peace Speaker series and Anonymous. I enjoy writing and hope to continue to do so for a long time to come.


I am here for the community that reads my work and I am looking forward to getting to know you guys as well (if you let me of course). I hope that those of you who do read some of my works will enjoy it at least as much as I enjoyed making it. If I can do that, and maybe even get you to think about some of the things involved in that book, then I think I have succeeded in at least one of my primary goals.
