At the beginning of her search for Rook, a missing Chess Team member, Zelda Baker, Callsign: Queen, is redirected to Pripyat, Ukraine, a ghost town on the radioactive outskirts of Chernobyl. Intel indicates that a splinter cell of Manifold Genetics--a ruthless corporation dismantled by Chess Team--may be operating in the area. Tasked with confirming the existence of a Manifold facility, Queen begins a recon sweep of the abandoned town in search of clues, but soon finds herself fighting for her life. Something sinister lurks beneath the decaying, surreal remnants of Pripyat's never-used amusement park, and it rises up to greet Queen. In Pripyat, the streets are empty, the derelict buildings crumble, but the bodies...are fresh.

It made a few feeble swipes at Queen, each weaker than the one before, until finally it went limp. The shard of glass snapped under its dead weight, and the oborot slid face-first to the ground. Queen used her foot to roll the oborot over onto its back. She could tell by the other wounds it had sustained that it was the same creature she’d fought earlier. No wonder it had died so

As she moved closer, she saw another trap door, this one larger than the one in the bumper car track, set directly in the ground below the ride deck like a cellar door. It was certainly worth checking. She took one last look at the ride, trying to spot any sign of danger. Seeing none, she dropped down on all fours and crawled underneath it. Sufficient moonlight glowed through the opening between the central column that supported the ride and the deck that she could see without having to resort

were bobbing up and down, and from the bottom of each, two razor sharp blades, one on either side, swung back and forth. “It’s dramatic, I know.” The voice was back. “But I think you’ll find our defenses effective.” All around the deck, spikes intermittently shot up and sank back down. “You don’t need to die here, like this. No soldier of your…skill…deserves a death like this. Give yourself up and live to fight another day.” Queen scowled. “Go fuck yourself.” She’d stick to her plan of blowing

your size and her hair is only a little darker. As long as no one gets a good look at you, they will probably take you for her at a glance.” “She’s not going to come walking in on us, is she?” The man’s face darkened and he shook his head. “She will not interrupt us, no.” There was something he wasn’t telling her. He looked up at her and frowned. Queen thought he had noticed the skull brand on her forehead, but then he explained. “You should probably wash the dirt off of your face.” Keeping

clenched shut. Every muscle in my body has gone tight, as though clutched in rigor. It knocks me back and I spill into a pile of bones and old skin. But I feel no weight on top of me. No gnashing of teeth on my body. The thing has missed its tackle, striking a glancing blow as it passed, but nothing more. Perhaps because I bent down. Perhaps because it can’t see well in the dark. I don’t know. I don’t care. I’m alive. For now. And I don’t want to die. But I’m certain I’m going to and the
