All her life, Marci Guerrero has kept a secret. Her mind is ravaged by shadows that cloak her thoughts and override her. They induce outrageous behavior that humiliates her mother and have Xave, the boy she likes, convinced she's a stunt-addicted brat. To cope, she Karate-kicks in a dojo every day, while at night she earns her reputation as the best teen hacker in Seattle.
Still, Marci is restless, always getting into trouble as she looks for release from the tormenting shadows inside her head. During one of her stunts, she lands in the path of tenacioius James McCay, the leader of a clandestine group know as IgNiTe. His presence stirs Marci's brain into a maddening frenzy. Her symptoms and ability to control them don't go unnoticed by James, who soon recruits her and reveals the awful truth...
A large number of the world's population is infected by sentient parasites. They bind to the human brain and rewire the pathways for all thoughts and actions. Once there, the creatures morph their hosts into grotesque monsters with extraordinary strengths. Winged, clawed, fanged half-humans become living nightmares. Worst of all, the creatures plan to infect all humans in a vicious attempt to take over the world.

Determined to stop this evil race, Marci fights alongside IgNiTe and others who. like her, can resist the infection. She battles for the world, herself, and to keep the trugh from Xave. He must never learn she's a monster.
