The year is 3010, the human race divided; the new breed living inside the World Administration dome network and outside the older breed. A pandemic, broken out throughout the dome network by a corrosion in the citizens' wrist chips, is causing the planet to die. Whether the outbreak was accidental or intentional, either way the reptilian race stood to gain from such an apocalypse.
With most metal resources now the property of the World Administration, survival of man, beast and plant will depend on such life forms working together; and the leniency of our galaxy controllers.
Leo, Thorn and their sister True experience the split of the human race first hand and are fully integrated in the World Administration system, each following a different trade. When a virus wrecks the dome network they discover an evil conspiracy and agenda is orchestrating an apocalypse. Earth is dying, a galactic contract is violated and no choice left but to migrate to another planet - with no technology mankind alone cannot manage such a migration.
Meanwhile between thirty and forty reptilian soldiers left the tunnel and now surrounded the perimeter of the human trap. During her last confrontation with them True noted that they wielded large clubs, this time they used roughly-made axes and jagged-edged carving knives; issued for the task of butchering. Leo, although a fully trained soldier with combat experience, had not come to terms with the visual contact with these walking lizard beasts. And considering the miserable dilemma, he should now have other things on his mind but instead he starred at the reptilian soldiers; studying them with a strange interest a fellow soldier had.Read Appetizers from the book here
