Sometimes, the survivors of biological weapons are not very numerous. The generations that follow the release of the most effective killer in human history live in an underground complex. The really... More > important matters, like reproductive pairings, are decided by computer. Another 200 years later, your scores from basic training decide what job the computer will assign to you, your genetic lineage, and who your mating partner will be...along with the genders of your children, and your expected delivery dates. If you are very lucky, you might be assigned to a place where you can meet your mate. Beth had studied hard and, presumably, scored well. So it was a tear-wrenching surprise to her that she was assigned to Hope...a colony distant from her home of Salvation, and to a probably practical job rather than a coveted technical one. Her assignment, however, seems different from the reality...much like her mentor. Within two years, it seems that the computer has chosen well, after all.< Less
