Rachael Linderen is from an Earth
nearly identical to our own. Save just a few things. The year is 2086, and she''s in the process of wondering what nanofied prom dress her just barely upper middle class family can afford. It''s a boojie world of high-tech gated communities as she grows into a young lady at Fairview High, Maryland, home of the Heliotropes. Meanwhile, World War II never happened quite the way we remember it. Democracy and the lineage of the Enlightenment is over. The United States of Cambian (USC) is about to seize power in a coup d''├ętat that publicly shames Congress and ''evacuates'' their families. Will Rachael understand what''s happening to her? Will she join the CAMBIAN mission in ridding the world of evil doers? Janus is the virtual nanny-bot for the State, but it is the secret overseer ''UNA'' who comes to visit Rachael with her own plans... ...for everyone...
