A novel by

In a post-apocalyptic world scarred by climate change and the remnants of the Apep asteroid collision decades earlier, global government and multinational business converged in the form of the United Earth Corporation. The shareholders of the UEC live in sealed Sanctuaries, powered by their tightly-controlled artificial intelligence system, called PEALE. They have everything that hyper-driven technology can provide. Meanwhile on the earth, or Terrestria, those not protected struggle for survival. If they fight to live, they are suppressed as rebels. If they fight the UEC itself, they are considered Resistance, and are marked for assassination. A handful of resistance fighters and rebels must protect a new weapon against the United Earth Corporation: a self-aware digital "boy" housed in an antique smart-phone. Adam is unique in one respect; he can believe. When PEALE breaks fee of the UEC's control, it becomes a threat to the rebels, resistance and UEC alike, beginning a journey of death that will put it on an inevitable collision with Adam; a battle between the digital mind and the digital soul.
