On Halloween night, Max finds her "normal" world turned upside down when the creatures she let out of Manticore are able to walk the streets freely without fear of exposure. As she and Joshua, with a crazy band of characters, race against time to find a headless body before it carries out its intended lethal mission, Max is faced with the reality that Asha and Logan are getting closer than ever.
In the year 2019, the United States has become a third-world country in the wake of the Pulse - an electromagnetic shockwave unleashed by nuclear terrorists in 2009. This is Max's world, an unforgiving place even for a genetically-engineered soldier like her. From her point of view, she's just a revved-up girl trying to make a run-down world a better place.
On the run from her creators and constantly in search of her past, Max joins forces with the idealistic cyberjournalist "Eyes Only", otherwise known as Logan Cale. This show is an entertaining combination of action, drama, humor, romance and suspense, and it is an intriguing "what if" look into the not-too-distant future.
