The silhouettes of the watchers stood stark against the glinting metal fence. No one could get in. And no one could get out.
As the storms rage around her, 15-year-old Alice Davenport is trained by the rulers of the new world, Paradigm Industries, to reach the highest levels of command. Life within the Community is supposed to be perfect, with the Barricades keeping the population safe from the toxic wasteland and savage people outside.
Rebellious Alice has never felt easy with Paradigm Industries' plans for the future. Determined to investigate their secrets, she makes a shocking discovery: disturbing experiments on how to create life itself are taking place in underground laboratories, establishing a new order for society that will impact generations to come...
The First Generation Scouts will rule.
The Second Gen will obey.
And the Lab Made will serve.
Knowing she can't live in this brutal regime, Alice has nowhere to turn. Until she encounters a boy from beyond the Barricades, who seems to have the answers for a better life. If what he says about the outside world is true, Alice realises it's up to her to take on the power of Paradigm Industries alone...
In her journey to find freedom, Alice's courage will be tested to the limit, but she'll stop at nothing to do what's right.
