In the near future, xenogenetist Carly Maclaine is the clone of a notorious pioneer in the field, who created an artificial intelligence called Napoleon. Napoleon has been on the run from the Commonwealth's secret police - but now they need Napoleon's help, and that means they need Carly's as well. Maclaine suddenly becomes a person of interest to the other Artificial Intelligences (AIs), paradox-loving Xeno and the deeply mysterious Oberon. These super-smart beings understand that everything is about to change, and that change can be dangerous, not only to them, but to everyone in society - and especially to someone like Carly! Another groundbreaking Tale of the Biotech Revolution.
