“You girls are specially chosen. An evolutionary wonder, destined to provide an invaluable addition to our rebuilding legacy.”
Lily and Mae are the first twins to be schooled in ‘The Nest’, under the polar ocean. Their fate is set; their life paths have been laid out by The Acer Elders. They are Seeders, destined for The Golden City of Intentionality. There they will work as academics to enhance the community – those who survived the Evo-shift that destroyed the world decades ago. But Mae has always been troubled, unusual, and unable to cope. Will she make it through the Ascension test?
To evolve is to improve. Is this always the truth?
How did a simple rite of passage turn into a fight for survival?
As Mae struggles with her skills, she becomes aware of another world, hidden by the luxury; a world of servitude. At the same time, she begins to realise that the promises from Intentionality are not quite as straightforward as they have been led to believe. Worst of all, her sister Lily appears to be in grave danger. Can Mae take control of her skills with the help of her new friends in time to save her twin?
Set in the future, after a huge ecological disaster, Intentionality
