Dyke Mellis hated the world with a passion; he was just waiting for a chance to strike back at the people who had ripped away his manhood and crippled his body. And then, that fateful day when Malpelo Island split open and the creatures emerged, his chance came – a bloodier and more terrible chance than he had ever dreamed of.

But as his dreadful plan began to work and his monstrous legion of bloodthirsty giants wreaked their terror he was faced with a new horror … would they destroy him before they reached his enemies ?
