The action here is set a year after the monster disaster at Archer's Peak. We immediately meet another young female survivor of a horrible monster attack that killed her entire family (a situation that later fosters a bond between her and Erica Slaughter). Erica makes her usual mysterious appearance. Although she has severed her ties to the House of Slaughter, she maintained a relationship with a mole in the organization: he feeds her intelligence about the appearance of new monsters, and information on how to kill them. In fact, she has already killed eight of them (off-panel) during the past year. But the Order of St. George does not appreciate rogue hunters or the nearly public mess she made in Archer's Peak. So, they send an assassin from the British House of Cutter to kill her. Erica has caught up with the Duplicitype monster, and realizes that she does not know how to kill it. But Cutter has caught up with her friend Big Gary, and knows where she is...
