Synopses & Reviews
With microchips implanted in their skulls at birth, the slaves of Cantral and Cillineese have labored under the tyrannical rule of the nobles and their computers for decades. Monica, a noble who avoided the implanting and escaped a death sentence at the age of four, is now sixteen. She has risked life and limb to free the inhabitants of Cillineese, but the computers still rule the rest of the world.Now she must journey to Cantral and take the identity of her dying cousin, Amelia, to infiltrate the Nobles’ world in the guise of a teenager who is a master computer programmer. Because of her childhood living among the slaves of Cantral, Monica knows little about programming and must improvise to stay alive.The fate of millions rides on Monica’s shoulders. As the only chip-less person in the world, she must convince the Council of Eight of her innocence, destroy the computers, and free the world from the nobles before they discover her ruse.
It is 800 years in the future, and the world is being oppressed by the ruling class. Millions toil under the Nobles’ oppressive rule, but because of microchips implanted in their skulls at birth, there can be no uprising. Monica, a slave girl, escaped the chip-implantation process. She was able to infiltrate the Nobles’ security in one city and free the inhabitants of Cillineese, but will she be able to do the same in Cantral, where she must pretend to be her dying cousin, and infiltrate the nobles’ culture at its very core?
