What if a microchip could identify your perfect match?
What if it could be used against you and the ones you love?
Eight years ago, Mercer Corporationâ€™s M-Bands became mandatory. An evolution of the smartphone, the bracelets promised an easier life. Instead, they have come to control it.
Two years ago, Maggie Stevens watched helplessly as one of the people she loves most was taken from her, shattering her world as she knew it.
Now, Maggie is ready. And Quentin Mercer â€“ heir to the M-Corp empire â€“ has become key to Maggieâ€™s plan. But as the pieces of her dangerous design fall into place, could Quentinâ€™s involvement destroy everything sheâ€™s fought for?
In a world full of broken promises, the ones Maggie must keep could be the most heartbreaking.
Crouched in the shadows, I scoped the underground parking garage again – one of Arlington’s inner-city lots. I kept my focus on my surroundings, even as I took the time to pull my hoodie over my head. I wouldn’t need it for long. Soon, I’d be sweating. Running for my life does that.
I glanced down at my sleek M-Band, missing the days when a simple wristwatch sat in its place. When life wasn’t dictated by whatever data it spewed out. But those days are gone.
It had only taken nine years for the world to change completely. And forever. You’d have thought we were better than that. You’d have thought we’d fight harder and stronger. But it turns out being able to rate ourselves against one another, being able to scientifically map the way our pheromones interacted with every individual we crossed paths with, was more important than any of the other values we’d once held so dear. Like honour. Time. Family.
Like falling in love.
I had no desire to be told by a factory setting who was and wasn’t compatible with me. If anything I despised the technology, but that didn’t make me Pre-Evo. The Preference Evolution supporters might have felt like they had safety and power in numbers, but being a team player got you nowhere in this world.
