'One race. One world. One company. One mind. In 2257, democracy holds on by a thread. Four world powers implant a chip representing the latest advancements into every human being. Technology infiltrates our lives and bodies. Through the pervasive commercial influence, these chips determine what we read, hear, watch, say. And they store all our thoughts, writing, communications, art. And we are homogenous. "...the color of one's skin hardly allowed for such a basis of discrimination. For such an attribute to form the basis of a person's destiny was a bizarre notion, considering that in Chantal's world there was no such thing as race." Sounds utopian, but what happens to our cultures and heritage now that we are all one race? All storage of history has been wiped clean by the corporations. Or has it? Chantel Wild, a technical engineer for the Pangaea Corporation, downloads a movie with a glitch. It contains a disturbing piece of footage featuring "purebloods" that were believed to have been extinct. As she searches for answers, the lines between freedom and subjugation are blurred. "Why was it necessary to own another person? I mean we have the same practice in our century but it's called gainful employment not slavery." This journey through futuristic society into untouched realms unravels the truth behind the chips. Chantel morphs from model corporate citizen to wanted criminal. Who are the purebloods? Is all this a mask to disguise our technology enslavement? This science fiction, dystopian, techno thriller explores what the future may hold if we continue on our current trajectory from social networking to social control.'
