From the back of the book
The Near Now. The Possibility Wars rage on, but this time the battle is on the West Coast. The participants are Nippon Tech™ and the Living Land.™ Caught in the middle are the residents of Oregon, and their lives are the prize.
The United States has won an important battle for the West Coast. Sacramento and the rest of northern California have been reclaimed from Baruk Kaah's primitive Living Land realm.
Or so everyone thought. Northern California has not been reclaimed, but taken over by the rival Nippon Tech realm. Profit and greed are motivating the Kanawa Corporation, and it is not satisified. Oregon is next on Kanawa's list. As for the people who still live in Oregon ... there won't be any if the Storm Knights™ don't stop Operation: Hard Sell.
"Thank you for your cooperation. Do not worry about how we will do it, just be assured that we will reclaim Oregon."
