Taylor Bloc wants to know everything about Sable Keech s journeytracing and following his last steps. Moreover, Bloc is hungry for glory, power, and control. He ll do anything just to get the answers he seeks. A hive mind from the ancient days, almost unlike anything from the human race, has sent an agent to Spatterjay.
