November 1, 2000. This is the day the small Australian town of Bracken changes forever. Nearly fifty children are born throughout the month. All are supernatural. Some have black hair and eyes, some have blue hair and eyes, others have brown, gold, green, grey, magenta or silver. One child has features with all eight colours. As they mature into adolescence, they form into warring factions poised to tear their families and community apart. The townsfolk wait and watch, dreading their fate. No one knows why the children are here or what they are capable of. It can only be a matter of time before their mysterious potential is reached, but what is it? On the other side of the world is Kahia Vicious. Conceived in Australia but born on November 1, 2000 in rural Russia; the black-haired, black-eyed girl lives a cloistered existence. Raised with her eight siblings by a manipulative mother and a psychotic militaristic father, she is trained in the killing arts from a young age. Inducted into the family business as an operative of the clandestine anti-narcotic organization Global Hammer, Kahia is encouraged by her bloodthirsty kin to explore her unnatural talents for murder... and worse. A highly-skilled mercenary with harsh standards of justice, a split personality and a dark hunger, Kahia stalks the Earth- a terrifying portent of Bracken’s future.
