Jamie wants to be a halfskin.
Her life has become dull and pointless. If she had more biomites--synthetic stem cells that promise hope--she could take control of her life. But Jamie's body is already 49.9% biomites. The rest is clay--her God-given organic cells. Any more biomites and she becomes a halfskin. And halfskins are shutdown.
But there is a way.
Black market biomites, called nixes, can't be detected by the government's halfskin hunter, M0ther. Jamie would have to sacrifice her clay to get the nixes, but they would make her halfskin without anyone knowing. Including M0ther. But first she has to find them.
Nix Richards can help. He's the first halfskin to escape M0ther and Jamie has something he wants. He'll need her to help him find a fabricator. He'll betray anyone to get it, even those closest to him.
This psychological thriller will keep Nix and Jamie second-guessing every move while they elude M0ther and Marcus Anderson, the man that wants to rid the world of biomites. But in the end, they'll all discover just how deep the betrayal goes.
