Kagan, Alessa and Eight have a difficult goal, to help a group of pacifists escape a massive ruined city controlled by an oppressive government. Behind them is Conformity, the mind control technique used by UPC, Urban Population Control. Ahead, the ruins of America, replete with its own risks. Makz, a dangerous outcast, is gunning for Kagan. Revan, a government official, is committed to stopping the pacifists, and defending the City-State’s ideals.
