Genre: Soft Sci-Fi/YA
Plague and nuclear war have emaciated the earth, leaving the planet as a wasteland called the Unlivable Space. A dark stone falls from the sky and speaks only to the man who finds it, sharing technological secrets unknown to the world—secrets which enable his city to thrive amidst the chaos. Among the new creations is a machine which grants the society’s privileged–known as the Elect–special powers, as well as the ability to breed mutants to serve him and his followers.
But a clan of Muties living in the sewers is planning a rebellion and has created a device of their own, called Leech, enabling them to harness temporarily the power of The Elect. Twin Muties, Ash and Milt, are drawn into the conflict when Ash is wrongfully accused of murder and sentenced to death.
