With microchips implanted in their skulls at birth, the slaves of Cantral and Cillineese have labored under the tyrannical rule of the nobles and their computers for decades. Monica, a noble who avoided the implanting and escaped a death sentence at the age of four, is now sixteen. She has risked life and limb to free the inhabitants of Cillineese, but the computers still rule the rest of the world.
Now she must journey to Cantral and take the identity of her dying cousin, Amelia, to infiltrate the Nobles’ world in the guise of a teenager who is a master computer programmer. Because of her childhood living among the slaves of Cantral, Monica knows little about programming and must improvise to stay alive.
The fate of millions rides on Monica’s shoulders. As the only chip-less person in the world, she must convince the Council of Eight of her innocence, destroy the computers, and free the world from the nobles before they discover her ruse.
If you’ve read my review-ish thing of Amanda L. Davis’s book Precisely Terminated, you might think I loved the book. Well, this book was waaaaay better than Precisely Terminated, even though I guessed the ending plot twist of it at the end of Precisely Terminated. But the book was amazing. I found myself cheering, begging, and my heart freezing with anticipation through-out the entire book. Amanda L. Davis has outdone herself, and this book may be my new favorite book of all time. All I can say is, “Wow.”, and wait to be blown away by a new book, or maybe her next book, whenever she publishes it.
