'Meanwhile, a terrifying new threat looms. A single Doctor marches in to take control of the Humen Camp at Bankstown. A giant in size, Doctor Saniette aims to become the sole worldwide leader of all Humen forces. He brings with him an army of Queen-Hypers and other newly developed secret weapons.

'Ferren and Miriael are helped by Kiet, a fierce young woman from the tribe of Nesters. Ferren is torn between his old feelings for Miriael and his new feelings for Kiet.
