Leonard's sinister warning starts off a series of events that push Kaname and Sosuke down the path of no return. Now that Amalgam is serious about taking out MITHRIL, the duo find that they have nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. Melida Island transforms into a battlefield overnight, and the odds are stacked highly against the crew of TDD-1. There is no hero's respite for the cornered Sosuke. He must now choose between the few important things in his life, or risk to lose them all in one fell swoop.
