After her body changes in ways puberty can't explain, Lorelei Wilde discovers she's not only different–but more than human. When her evolutionary abilities are exposed, she's forced to flee into a rapidly changing world. Her odyssey takes her from the walled compound of a doomsday cult, to a privatized internment camp for the no-longer-human, and finally to an infectious disease research center cloaked in secrecy. There, she encounters Dr. Armin Mann, the architect of the mutagenic virus evolving people around the globe into a new species. Mann claims Lorelei was "stolen" from him when she was a baby–but only after his experiments rendered her fittest for survival in the imminent post-human frontier. Reunited with his test subject, Mann intends to continue remapping the future. But, Lorelei has other ideas.
