Cole Copeland Clay was born aged 21 in a dirty alley. He is a BonaFide.He soon learns that being a BonaFide means he cannot be seen by any human beings and that he will have one human to protect, that is his project and purpose in life.
Soon Cole learns that being invisible to the humans has no upside. Especially as The BonaFides are only one side of the battle. He learns of the beings he must battle to save his human, they are Creatures called, Venoms.
The more he learns about what is expected of him the more he sinks into anger and confusion. Things go from bad to worse and he is told that the human he is to protect is a newborn baby, she will be the chosen one. She will be the only human who will be able to see both The BonaFides and The Venoms. Her importance means subsequently Cole is the most important BonaFide to walk the earth.
As Cole leaves the safety of his fellows BonaFides, he runs into more and more Venoms and he quickly realises how brutal and vengeful they can be. Violence comes easy to them.
The Venoms start turning into Terrorists, blowing up landmarks, humans and BonaFides alike with relish.
As Cole continues his quest, we meet more and more BonaFides and Venoms who can't decide which side they are on.All they know is that they all have a part to play. Kable is a immortal Venom trying to drink himself to death with obvious consequences. Shiloh has to kill a person she has never met or she will die quicker than expected. Valentine is a lover who is not loved back. Manna is a beautiful French BonaFide who is more than able to kill thousands of Venoms. Bob is the leader of a group of strong BonaFides, he is grumpy, quiet and not afraid of anythingMr Firestone is the leader of The Venoms, brutal, masochistic, sadistic and blood thirsty. He stalks Cole and the child he has to save throughout their journey. As Cole continues to fight he loses more and more sense of what is right and wrong, he loses people around him and yet something deeply heroic in him burns like a thousand suns.
As they get ever closer to a showdown both Mr Firestone and Cole know that after they face off, lives will never be the same again.
