“My candle burns on both ends;
It will not last the night.
But ah my foes, and oh my friends,
It gives a lovely light!”
It is now 30 days until Grace’s Deathday
That is the fate on the red card Grace was dealt at age six on Dealing Day. A burner. Her twin sister, Millay, was dealt a white card. A People. No Deathday.
For twenty years, the sisters have lived different lives. In different places.
Then there’s the wild card, Ryker, a burner, who has no memories of his own past.
In what was left of the world after the Chaos, mankind surrendered control to Dealer, a powerful computer that has kept society running for centuries.
But truths don’t come easy. And everyone and everything is not as they appear.
The mantra in following Dealer’s edicts: It is what it is.
“Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world!”
