"We are legion. But you, Master Zaytsev, are only one..."
Nineteen-year-old council member, Tim Zaytsev, is tasked with removing glitches from the council's newest living airship, the CLS Manticore. Like its predecessor, the Manticore is formed from living shapeshifters. Their minds were wiped and their memories erased, but the occasional "ghost" of their personalities remain.
Removing the "ghosts" should be simple after dealing with the first vessel. But the task descends into madness when the Manticore traps Tim within its fleshy walls and attempts to force him to join the shapeshifters who made the merge.
Determined to undermine the ship's dangerous, telepathic games and convince the other council members that the ship is manipulating them, Tim must summon a courage he's never had, the courage to stay and fight. But doing so would force him to confront the vessel alone—a path that can only end in his destruction.
Authors' Note: Spirits of a Glitch is the third book in a three-part serial. Each book has a complete arc, but the first two end on a mild cliffhanger. They are short novels, and are intended to be read in order.
