She was an anomaly with a death sentence. Now she's free.
Thalli was scheduled for annihilation. She was considered an anomaly--able to experience emotions that should have been eradicated by genetic modification. The Scientists running the State couldn't allow her to bring undue chaos to their peaceful, ordered world. But seconds before her death, she is rescued.
Now Thalli is above ground in a world she thought was destroyed. A world where not even the air is safe to breathe. She and her three friends must journey across this unknown land, their destination a hidden civilization. It's their only chance of survival.
Broken and exhausted after an arduous journey, they arrive in New Hope, a town that survived the nuclear holocaust. When Thalli meets the people there--people actually "born" to "families"--her small world is blown wide open.
Soon after their arrival to New Hope, the town comes under attack. She has escaped imminent death, but now Thalli is thrust into a new fight--a fight to save her new home. Does she know enough about this world of emotions, this world of chaos, to save not only herself, but the people she has come to love?
Character Guest Post: Dr. Loudin
I am so misunderstood. But geniuses always are. The small-minded cannot comprehend what great minds are thinking and planning, so they assume we are evil. They place labels on us, and in their limited understanding assume what they cannot understand must not be good. But I know more than they do, and my ability to see past what could be will allow them to be better than they are. Already, the generations I have created outshine previous generations. We have eradicated the problem of emotions. We have cleansed and strengthened the immune system. My parents’ generation had to worry about diseases like cancer; they had to battle illnesses like pneumonia and meningitis. My generations do not even struggle with the common cold. Yet, some still fight me. Thalli wants to label me a murderer, cold-hearted. But she does not know. She does not understand. There is so much more to me than anyone – almost anyone – on this earth comprehends.
