The world is a circus, and our genes are the clowns. A twelve-year-old boy named Teddy is running from a home that is no more. The year is 2082, and genetically designed babies have become not just a reality but an obsession. When Teddy's father consulted a black market doctor, he got more than he paid for. But when he runs away to join the Fabled Circus, Teddy will get the full dividends of his father's investment. There, the sinister underpinnings of Fabled Circus, responsible for genetic mutations like Chiron and Aello, will draw Teddy into its tangled mystery. Then, once he learns the secret, he'll be fighting more than the ghost of his twisted father.
