It is unheard of for people taking Longevity to die. But it is happening. People are dying. Pincent Pharma is blaming the Underground for sabotaging a batch of Longevity. Panic ensues and once again people are turning against the Underground, Opt Outs, Surpluses and anyone known to be sympathetic to them. Neighbor turns against neighbor.
Peter and Anna are hidden away with their family. Jude is monitoring Pincent Pharma while also feeling underappreciated. Sheila is still looking for her parents. Pip, the leader of the Underground, has many secrets.
Has Longevity been sabotaged or was there something wrong with it from its inception? Were people really meant to live forever?
It took me a little bit to get into this book, but it was worth reading. It took a bit to get into because the beginning was pretty boring with all of the rehashing of what went on before in the other two books(The Declaration and The Resistance). But once that was finished the story picked up the pace and ultimately turned into a page-turner.
