Andy, John, Wendy, and Zack must figure out how to save everything they love, but before they win the battle against a powerful corporation named CORT, they first must win the battle within. In this second book of the CORT Chronicles, a dangerous new robot called Spirral is in the process of being built. Each young hero is given powers and tools to survive, guided by sages and memories of a world long gone. And as they fight to save Earth, our champions discover that only human connection and emotions can truly triumph over evil.
