A heart-stopping middle-grade survival adventure where the only way to survive is to evolve!

His mother is a scientist. His dad was a soldier.

Ash is something new altogether.

Kidnapped, Ash McCarthy wakes up on a remote tropical island. Why is he there? What is this medical facility around him? Most importantly, what’s happening inside of him? Ash needs answers. He has twenty-four hours to get them. To escape, Ash must risk his life. But what’s more dangerous: the jungle, his captors, or the mysterious chemical injected into his veins?
