It's 2052. A new reality is just a download away.
Decay is ubiquitious as the world's population shrinks under Sagan's Law. But no one cares, as their lives are consumed by the Digital Sea: an immersive augmented reality that's always on, seen through eye-screens and controlled by the mind. Zel Aurora, a skilled reality-hacker, can change the Digital Sea with a thought, but all that power can't save her daughter from a deadly disease. So Zel makes a deal with the Djed, a powerful crime lord that she's betrayed once before, to stop the new realities threatening his global empire. When the Djed sends along his murderous bodyguard that's immune to her powers to make sure she completes the job, she's forced to make a choice that may cost her daughter's life.
