Summary: Dean is a privileged member of the dwindling original population of North America that has been decimated by viral outbreaks and low birth rates. Human clones have been created to bolster the work force. They are a segregated underclass relegated to the status of soulless drones by their Geneticore creators and by powerful religious groups like the Mothers Union, who consider themselves to be the blessed vessels of God’s greatest creation: the human soul.
This is a story about the complicated relationship between two boys who are forced to grow up into hardened soldiers by a society teetering on the brink of civil war.
