Born into the horrors of a post-Pacification world, Magdalena Suarez never expected much of a life. A few decades, at best, in the slave camps, until some injury or illness rendered her upkeep “no longer efficient” for her machine overseers and their rulers, the all-seeing Eyes. Day after day of drudgery and servitude and, on occasion, danger, as she and her fellow survivors went about their assigned tasks.
Except now, something has changed. Something anomalous has arisen from a lengthy slumber, something even the machines cannot comprehend. Something they, with their artificial cameras and sensors, cannot even see. Something with impossible powers, impossible strength.
Something ancient that hunts only in the dark of night.
Magdalena is about to discover a truth she never dared dream possible: Things yet exist in the world that may be more powerful even than the machines. For the first time in her life, she might have reason to hope for something more.
But is this “anomaly” truly a potential escape, or does it promise merely a new and even more horrific sort of servitude?
In the ruins of the world that was, Magdalena and the last remnants of humanity will find themselves caught in an impossible war between the mechanical and the mystical—between the unliving and the undead.
