Centuries from now, ecological disaster has overtaken the earth. Humanity is faced with two options: flee to the stars, or genetically engineer itself into a kind of creature that no longer needs to breathe the poisoned air. Against this backdrop a mysterious spy, a blind man with extrasensory vision, and a brilliant but tortured scientist struggle to alter the course of the future. Meanwhile, megacorps compete for the lucrative rights to act as humankind's savior— or to steal its soul.
