It's been a long and hard road for Daigo Asahina. He's gone from a know-nothing rookie to a veteran brutally hardened by one unbelievable disaster after another. He's done the impossible, the unexpected, the unimaginable, and the unthinkable.
He has risked his life, defied fate, and saved lives because deep down; he is still the scared 6 year old boy who remembers choking from the hot smoke and feeling his skin broiling from the scorching flames. And he despises the helplessness he felt, the despair that no one was coming to save him, the absolute certainty that he was going to die, and he hates his immortal enemy like no other.
But this time, surrounded by a sea of flames with no way to escape ... fire may be the only thing that can save him.
