Overview

"Cities of Abid is a subtly, apocalyptic look at a future, tension-filled society. The tension stems from a caste system that divides the populace based on genes. There are two sides to the gene divide, those who have received enhancements and those who have not. Identity in this world is found by looking into one's familial past. Life's toughest questions are answered by a culturally regimented system of learning one's genetic history.

The story follows two young men from two branches of the same family tree which reside on opposite sides of the gene divide. Readers are dropped into their lives as each one is brought to a crucial point of discovery. A discovery, that they each have an unforeseen purpose in affecting the social order. Both men are guided into this place by learning new information about their family's past. Their eyes are opened to see who they could become. What they do with what they learn will ultimately decide the course of all humanity."
