Off the coast of Brazil, a team of scientists discovers a horror like no other, an island where all life has been eradicated, consumed, and possessed by a species beyond imagination. Before they can report their discovery, a mysterious agency attacks the group, killing them all, save one: an entomologist, an expert on venomous creatures, Professor Ken Matsui from Cornell University.

The artifact was hidden away by a cabal of scientists-led by Alexander Graham Bell-to protect humankind. But they dared not destroy it, for the object also holds an astonishing promise for the future: the very secret of life after death. Yet nothing stays buried forever. An ancient horror- dormant in the marrow of those preserved bones-is free once more, nursed and developed into a weapon of incalculable strength and malignancy, ready to wreak havoc on an unsuspecting world.

To eradicate this extinction-level threat and expose those involved, he will have to join forces with Sigma's greatest enemy-the newly resurrected Guild-even it if means sacrificing one of his own.
