A parable for our technological era? Or an apocalyptic road-trip of mayhem, sex, love, and martial arts?
As a young warrior-priest in an idyllic mountain monastery, Cade longs to possess the technological miracles of his superiors. After all, who wouldn't want the power to read thoughts, dodge bullets, and remotely Connect to any mind on the planet?
When he gains these abilities, he uses them as any teenager would: he wreaks havoc. He flees from the consequences and begins a lonely and dangerous life in the city, protected only by the powers of a dead man's brain implant. Addiction and depression make him an easy target for those envious of his abilities.
A band of strange companions is drawn to him, each made an outcast by their own bizarre desires and fantasies. Their differences are an explosive mix, only partially restrained by their growing intimacy. As they draw closer, Cade's abilities become more unpredictable and dangerous. He will need to tap their deepest secrets as an unfolding conspiracy is turning friends to enemies, and enemies into something horrific.
