Liam Mulcahey, a reclusive and shocked veteran, remembers little of the Great War. Ten years later, while caught in a brutal attack on a Chicago sweatshop, Liam is rescued by Grace, an attractive heiress capable of deluding herself. Although the attack appears to have been carried out by the hated uprising, Grace believes it was orchestrated by Leland De Pere, Liam’s former commander and the current President of the United States.
Meeting Grace brings to light long-buried memories. Liam’s former team, the Devil’s Henchmen, have been given a serum to enable telepathic communication, turning them into a unified killing machine. With Grace’s help, Liam begins to regain his abilities, but when De Pere learns of it, he orders his militia to eliminate Liam at all costs.
But Liam’s abilities are developing rapidly. When Liam turns the tables and delves into De Pere’s plans, he uncovers a terrible secret. The same experience that bestowed Liam’s abilities was geared toward darker goals. Liam must sail against both his enemies and his so-called allies to stop the President’s nefarious plans before they are unleashed on the world. And Grace hides her own secrets, secrets that could prove to be just as dangerous as those of the president.

Den of Geek says: Brandon Sanderson is always a treat for readers – check out this novel that accompanied Skyward’s release last month Cytonic.
Editor’s summary: From # 1 bestselling author Brandon Sanderson and Janci Patterson, here’s the finale of three stories from the Skyward series, each told from the perspective of a different member of the team back on Detritus. Hear Jorgen’s Story with Cytonic.
With Detritus’ government in disarray over Superiority’s betrayal, and with Spensa still on a mission in Nowhere, Jorgen must work with alien Alanik to pick up the pieces. They intercept a strange transmission from the planet Evershore and its Kitsen inhabitants, who say they have people from Jorgen and want to return them, but can the Kitsen be trusted? And can Jorgen learn to harness his increasingly erratic cytonic powers before they run out of control and destroy any hope of forming an alliance against Superiority?
