Deep Black Road: The Head of the Snake

It all started in 2079 with the three of them. 
First there was the general, who wasn't about to let a fatal illness interfere with his plan to take over the Federation of North America.
Then there was the boy, who loved robotics and games, but was crushed by a robot run amok.
And finally, the girl: being groomed by her wealthy and influential father for business success and political power, she was cut down in a freak car accident.
But they didn't die
The general, getting his wish to be made robotic, toppled the provincial government of Foredan, planning to take on the rest of the Federation.
The boy's father, clinging to his last emotional connection with his late wife, put his son's soul into a memorial robot, which got tangled up in the general's machinations, and fell into the hands of renegade Follower of the Anointed One.
The girl, roboticized at her father's expense, joined the general in opposition to her father, intending to ride his coattails to the power she craved.
None of them counted on the Prophet, hiding like a deadly snake in the grass, waiting for the right moment to strike; and when he did the three robots found themselves thrown together and on the run from the New Order.
Can the boy, who was granted a 'great and terrible' destiny when he hovered between death and life, be able to find his way to it...on the Deep Black Road?
