Her touch is the deadliest secret... After the bombs have fallen, Earth rises again - using the power of corporations, gears and meta-humans. In a world where everything has a price, power always goes to the highest bidder. Temperamental and reclusive, science prodigy Blanca Zola is sent on a job by her assassin family to participate in an underground auction for a mysterious weapon known only as The Danger Kiss. The target of numerous conglomerates and syndicates, The Danger Kiss is believed to possess the strength to tip the scales of any conflict- and grant its owner immeasurable power. In the bowels of Asphalt City, Blanca meets the last person she wishes to see again...Dalek, a legendary ring fighter, her former protector - and the only man outside her family who knows her darkest secret. As she stands on her own to face the dangers of her seemingly simple mission, Blanca grapples with her true ties to Dalek, her loyalty to her family, and the consequences of possessing a gift that has cursed her with the merest touch.
