An uneasy calm has settled over Perdido Beach. But now starvation is setting in – for the kids, and for something else. In an abandoned mine shaft a faceless animal lurks, pulling the strings, toying with human and mutant alike. And he’s hungry – hungry in the darkness. Meanwhile, more and more kids are developing strange powers – and, worse, so are the animals. Talking coyotes, swimming bats and deadly worms with razor teeth! For Sam Temple, the strain of leadership is showing. Caine is back with the psychotic whiphand, Drake, by his side. And in the background lies the greatest danger of all – and he needs to be fed.
