The year is 2315 and science has extended life expectancy to three-hundred years by effectively halting physical development in late childhood. Secured inside giant hives and protected from outsiders condemned to live natural lives, the forever children play at their endless games. But a terrible earthquake breaks the seal between the two worlds just long enough to throw the lives of two boys into turmoil, exchanging their destinies. Now Seelin must live as an outsider, growing up to raise a family in the chaotic wilderness, while Kianno takes Seelin's place as a forever boy. Years later, haunted by distant memories, Kianno and Seelin are compelled to cross forbidden boundaries to find each other, and to discover the lives which might have been their own. Their journeys take them into the heart of a struggle which threatens the very foundation of a world captivated by its own eternal youth.

Beautifully written and a cut above your run of the mill science fiction story, this one stands out. It carries you along at breakneck speed, and it isn't until you're done that you start to ponder the ideas surrounding the theme. It had me up late at night, with lots of hard science in there too. A wonderful book.
