It's 2164. Dome Six has been cut off from the outside world for decades. Daisuke Yamamura, a technician, fears its crumbling infrastructure won't protect them from the Burn for much longer. An unusual work order takes him deep into the bowels of the Dome, where he learns a shocking truth. But when a synthetic organism erases his memory of the job, he becomes determined to learn where he went and why.
As the Fifth Epoch approaches, century-old Dome Six is crumbling. The protection it has long provided against the Burn has never been weaker and an unknown saboteur threatens their survival. The Authority struggles to maintain order and control over a fearful and weary citizenry, desperate for good news from the rooftop sensors.
Nearly 20 years have passed since Toshiko and Hideki Yamamura’s parents vanished from the Dome, yet it still follows them like a shadow. Toshiko, now forced to teach Authority-mandated BS to schoolchildren, still seeks the truth. Hideki is a junkie addicted to mind-altering Macro-organisms of his own design.
Tosh’s stepson is Owen Welsh, an orphan whose mother died at birth and whose father vanished without a trace. When his Placement doesn’t go his way, he must either resign himself to a life of toil or forge his own path to the truth. Together, they must risk everything for the answers or be driven mad by the questions.
What’s become of the outside world? What remains of Cytocorp, and what are they working toward? If history is constantly rewritten and even the dead tell lies, how do you ever learn the truth, and at what cost?
