The world of Nae-Née has undergone a tremendous change. 6.8 billion were killed within the space of a year. The Cull was not a natural plague: it was genocide. Human beings – each one... More > unique, many talented – have been erased. The world reflects the new reality of the damage wrought by human overpopulation and resource depletion. Most of it is underwater. Universal use of Nae-Née, the nanite birth control device, continues. Anyone wishing to reproduce must get a license to do so, and none will be granted before a death has been recorded. The world’s banksters, hedge fundsters, and corporatists – whom Avril has dubbed “Farmers” due to their treatment of humans as a crop to be managed – orchestrated the Cull. She must find a way to make this crime transparent to all while remaining out of reach. The Farmers are a pernicious threat, one that must be addressed, or the new world order will be one of fear and manipulation by the powerful few.< Less

No...collapse was upon us at last. The measures taken to handle resource shortages are shown: a population cull hidden in a vaccine, and a militarized surveillance society to manage the overflow.< Less
