Identity Science Fiction
As American culture decays and is rendered moot by the mingling of fact, myth, and
propaganda, a new legend arises—one of human hope in the hands of non-
The Thrones, a group of biological “mistakes” rumored to be less than human, have inspired the writing of new religious texts many regard as sacred. But an obsessed college professor, Ruth Long, is committed to dispelling such myths as farce. She soon discovers that the cost of unveiling the Thrones is greater than expected. As her hunt produces truths difficult to accept, Ruth must choose between a life of sacrifice, or of comfort.
The exploration becomes more than academic when Jamal Battle, a thug indentured to capture and silence the Thrones, methodically uncovers the Thrones and their secrets. At his disposal are the full resources of a megalomaniacal plutocrat who regards the Thrones as “property.” Sparing no expense—or care for the damage he causes—Jamal attempts to reinvent himself with fire, force, and death.
As he struggles for sanity, Jamal’s desperation collides with Ruth’s will to find her own identity. The result is a race to reveal the Thrones as divine saviors, or to hide their existence behind social hysteria and erase them forever.
