In a future of near-instantaneous global travel, of abundant provision, a future in which no one living can recall an actual war… a long era of stability threatens to come to an abrupt end.The year is 2454. The sun is setting on a hard-won golden age . For three centuries, humanity has enjoyed peace and prosperity fuelled by technological abundance, oracular data analytics, careful censorship… and just a little blood. In a world dominated by seven factions, or ‘Hives’, the price of peace has been a few secret murders , mathematically planned to ensure political and economic balance . But now the secret is out, the balance is slipping and war beckons. Convict Mycroft Canner knew this war was coming – he committed his terrible crimes to forestall it. Now, he has just one card left, a wild card no degree of statistical genius could have predicted: a thirteen-year-old child with the power to work miracles. Turning thought into matter, matter in life, this child has the power to save the world, or to doom it .
