EPISODE 3 – Combat Obstacles
Determination forged in combat is its purest form.
Game One of the Tech Games is pushing the limits of even extra-human capabilities. Roland must face the longest and most dangerous obstacle course in existence, if he wants a chance at uncovering evidence against the ruthless Pinnacle Corporation to save his father.
With 20 story rope climbs, 70 mph escalators, 100 foot free dives, and a strongman event, will Roland’s homegrown nanotech be able to keep up with the other cutting edge contestants? Roland and his tiny team will have to dig deeper than they ever thought possible as they try to find solutions on the fly for overcoming these harrowing obstacles.
Weapons are authorized! Episode 3 adds another method for the contestants to dish out even more brutal punishments than before: futuristic weapons. Roland unleashes his carbon alloy weapon, using his mind to uniquely shape it for every situation.
There’s more than just the race! Skylar’s latest plugin puts Roland undercover in Pinnacle’s most secure facility. One false move on this clandestine operation will most certainly put Roland in a small cell with Pinnacle only too happy to throw away the key.

Dirk Pitt returns, in the thrilling new novel from the grand master of adventure and #1 New York Times–bestselling author.
While investigating a toxic outbreak in the Caribbean Sea that may ultimately threaten the United States, Pitt unwittingly becomes involved in something even more dangerous—a post-Castro power struggle for the control of Cuba. Meanwhile, Pitt’s children, marine engineer Dirk and oceanographer Summer, are on an investigation of their own, chasing an Aztec stone that may reveal the whereabouts of a vast historical Aztec treasure. The problem is, that stone was believed to have been destroyed on the battleship Maine in Havana Harbor in 1898, which brings them both to Cuba as well—and squarely into harm’s way. The three of them have been in desperate situations before . . . but perhaps never quite as dire as the one facing them now.
From the Hardcover edition.
In 1791, two men began planning the layout for the nation’s capital city. One is shunned and resigns in disgrace, and the other is all but forgotten. Years later, an original copy of the plans long thought to have been destroyed is found, with hastily marked notations by Thomas Jefferson and George Washington. During the second World War, American military scientists discover some fascinating properties of the hydrogen atom and its link to an ancient mystical number. The exact findings are never published, but a national laboratory is built in 1943 to further their research in covert silence. America is told it is a defense project, code-named The Manhattan Project. An ego-maniacal entrepreneur and his company, Vilocorp, will stop at nothing to build the perfect human specimen. His firm’s research has been getting closer every day, but they seem to have uncovered a horrific, ancient secret that has been locked away for thousands of years. Now, it’s up to two men to understand the mystery surrounding the events and ancient symbolism before Vilocorp unleashes a hellish fury upon the earth; one that hasn t been seen for ages…
