To eat or be eaten was the last imperative of the once noble species. All the accoutrements of being the most civilized of creatures had faded away and the human beast had been returned to the savagery of the primordial forest.
This was the truth everywhere in the world, except one place—a small island, forgotten before and after the fall, a place where the sun yet shined down onto hopeful souls, 117 souls, the children of the Eden Project, who lived all their days until now in a great, glass dome.
They were the children of light, pure blooded, uninfected, but they all knew (down to the smallest among them) that these hours of eternal incandescence were numbered.
They all knew, every moment they breathed, that their destinies awaited them outside the glass, where darkness forever reigned.

Frustrated by her seemingly pointless efforts to prove her worth to the Free Thinkers, she wonders if she made the right choice. Yet she can’t go back to her old life, can’t forgive Magnum for what it did to her mother.

At last Dara is made a Free Thinker operative, trained and taught the truth about the Great Famine and its aftermath, but she must conceal her knowledge at all cost. Andersen must believe she’s no more than the sacrificial lamb he thinks she is.
