In 2041 his only chance was a multi-million dollar nanotech procedure – a price tag far out of reach until he entered ‘Arena Mode’: a no-holds-barred fighting tournament reserved for super-powered beings, where the winner would become one of the wealthiest people on the planet. Moxon escaped the grueling event with his life, as well as the grand prize...but en route to crossing the proverbial finish line he was forced to kill Sergei Taktarov: a superhuman with a legion of followers who considered him the Second Coming. In the aftermath of Arena Mode, Moxon retreats to Northern Canada in search of solace, unaware that he’ll soon be hunted by religious extremists, bounty hunters, and entire governments – all in search of the one known as 'The God Slayer'.
