Mad just lost his human. Suicide is no option. Determined to move on into a life of solitude away from the killing, the gangs and constant wars, Mad chooses to become Nomad, unaffiliated with anyone. He would seek no vengeance for Tommy, at least not for now. Duncan, has some information that Mad needs to hear. If only Mad could calm his rage against this stranger who wants to take Tommy’s place, he would know the real reason his human was dead. Lowachee brilliantly weaves a story of love, friendship and being human through the eyes of a machine.
