The chip in your brain is the source of your happiness and the key to your health. It guides you, it looks after you . . . and it turns you into a complacent slave.
Kal is a young scientist, who fits well in the chip-regulated society. But when he accidentally discovers how the chip is playing with his mind, his life is in danger.
Amber is a chipless girl from afar with a problem of her own. She helps Kal to escape the city police and they flee the city together. Now that the chip no longer controls him, Amber also arouses in Kal new, confusing feelings with which he has a hard time coping.
Amber is more important to the city rulers than Kal imagines, and the hunt for them both is on. They must travel through dangerous territories to reach a safe destination, and time is running out for Kal. If they fail to get there in time, both his life and the hope of fighting the city tyrants will be lost.

This is a fabulous story from start to finish. It’s so well written, with a very clever and interesting plot. The unpredictability of the story is one of the many things that appealed to me. Kfir Luzzatto has put together a great group of characters, and it was easy to like Amber and Kal, two of the main characters in the story. I know how much I’m enjoying a book when I need to stop reading it, when life gets in the way and I can’t wait to pick it up again, and this was certainly one of those. With Kal being implanted with a chip in his head on his first birthday, he had never known any other world or reality. Kal lived and worked in the city as a Physicist for the High Professor, who controlled everyone via their chip. It was hard for him to understand how someone that didn’t have a chip, would enjoy living as much as he did, as Kal was sure there wasn’t a better way to live than in a controlled environment. It wasn’t until he met Amber who was from the Freeland, that he discovered how different things were for people outside the city, who weren’t controlled by a chip. Sure, life was sometimes harder, but he was experiencing things he had never done before. Maybe there was a better life outside the city, however Kal and Amber are going to have a tough time of it in trying to make it to Freeland alive and in one piece. Add this book to your reading list, you won’t be disappointed. It’s well worth the 5/5 Star
