This second of four collected volumes in the massively popular Orphans series from Italian masterminds Roberto Recchioni and Emiliano Mammucari focuses on the relationship between two enigmatic members of the Orphan squad, Sam and Ringo. Both were affected by the devastating tragedy that left the world in turmoil, and their conscripted military training leads to some soul-bearing drama revealed in flashback. Meanwhile, in the war-torn present, grown-up Sam searches for Ringo, who is lost on the alien planet, at risk of dying from the poisonous atmosphere if he isn't found before his counteracting drugs run dry. But someone else is looking for Ringo too—a cold and mysterious killer who has a personal drive to complete his assassination mission . . . Can Sam find him before the killer does? This volume collects chapters 4–6 of the series, concluding with a twist revelation that will have significant repercussions on the entire series to follow.
