Benni Dublanc is exemplary, which, in the year 2622 CE, is entirely ordinary. She's young, she's pretty, she's in love, and she attends Academy Aeraea, a center of fashion, thought and modern style built on the pulse of the greatest city ever imagined-Genesia, Mars. Like all Genesians, Benni has never seen a blue sky, she can summon any and all knowledge into view with nothing more than a thought, makes her daily two-hundred kilometer commute in two minutes, and was sculpted into a model citizen beginning from the day she was born. Benni will never know famine, she will never know war, and after a horrific accident on the night of her twenty-second birthday, she will never be human again.

This is a FANTASTIC book by a WONDERFUL young author! I love the writing style, the descriptiveness and the creativity in his stories. This book captures your attention from the beginning and takes you on a journey into the future, on the planet, Mars. The social, economic and environmental issues that unfold in this story are captivating and possible predictions of the future. And the best part is that this is just the first book of the trilogy, so there is more great story to look forward to. I also have read this author's first trilogy, The "Lore" Trilogy. which is an absoultely wonderful fiction-fantasy trillogy. Do yourself a favor and pick up Chad T. Douglas' books, as this young wriiter will be entertaining us with his stories ( and hopefully movies ) for years to come!
