Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Many years have passed since civilization's brush with apocalypse. The world's greatest threats have all been silenced. There is no anger, no hatred, no war. There is only perfect peace ... and fear. But a terrible secret has been closely guarded for centuries: every single soul walking the earth, though in appearance totally normal, is actually dead, long ago genetically stripped of true humanity. Fleeing pursuit, a young man named Rom stumbles into possession of a vial of blood and a piece of cryptic writing. When consumed, the blood will bring him back to life. When decoded, the message will lead him on a perilous journey that will require him to abandon everything he has ever known and awaken humanity to the transforming power of true life and love. But the blood will also resurrect hatred, ambition, and greed. Set in a terrifying, medieval future, where grim pageantry masks death, this tale of dark desires and staggering stakes peels back the layers of the heart for all who dare take the ride--Dust jacket flap.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2011 September #1
    Popular thriller-writer Dekker teams up with rising star Lee in the first book of a new postapocalyptic trilogy set five centuries from now in a society in which all emotions, except for fear, have been engineered out of the human species. The novel focuses on 24-year-old Rom, who unexpectedly comes into possession of a vial of blood that could change humanity's future. The problem, though, is that Rom has no idea what to do with this incredibly valuable item. Also, a very powerful and, for personal reasons, exceedingly desperate man is determined to do whatever it takes to find the vial. Dekker and Lee have created an intriguing future world in which human beings are fundamentally different from what they are today but who still operate with the same basic motivations, even if they don't know that they do. It's a world poised on the edge of vast upheaval, and Dekker and Lee draw readers into it and make them eager to read more about it. Copyright 2011 Booklist Reviews.
