|Plot Summary of Behemoth: B-Max|
Tor, Jul 2004, 24.95, 300 pp.
Five years have passed since a vengeful cyborg Lenie Clarke released Behemoth on the world destroying everything in it path as the microbe is eating up matter. Digital monsters add to the devastation using Clarke as a rallying cry to devastate survivors through what is left of the Internet. Meltdown cults dedicated to Clarke pledge mass suicide as they rule alongside deadly war lords on the surface.
However, on the ocean floor, Lenie Clarke has learned the truth that her grudge was built on a false premise. As the altered rifters and the technoindustrial corporate executives hide in fear in Atlantis on the ocean floor of the Midatlantic Ridge, the grim reaper, a giant monster, comes for them. Only Lenie Clarke can save the few remaining if she finds a cure for the virus, but first she must fight the giant monster.
B-Max is book one of two books.
