Book #2 Description
When Corporations own everything that humans need to stay alive, your company is your home, your food source, your school, and your hospital. It supplants your friendships, your religion, and even your family. Leaving the corporation means forfeiting it all, and those who remain inside refer in whispers to the Departed: those who have been cast out.
The Book of Wanda's narrative winds like DNA around that of the Book of Eadie, sharing some of its timeline and overlapping it at key events. Wanda, a dedicated laboratory worker and mother, is forced out of Amelix Integrations and dumped on the streets with other Departed. Like all corporate ambulatory workers, she has been engineered, educated, and conditioned for corporate compliance, but how can that background help her survive the Zone’s violent anarchy?
Organizations grow ever larger, even in the Zone. As armies clash around her, Wanda begins to understand how vulnerable a lone individual can be. She is swept into the heart of the conflict and finds herself present at the most important incident in all of human evolution.
