Lucian Pope has always known there was something wrong with the city of Brightwater, but he could never pinpoint the problem. Everyone’s utter reliance on computers to make even the simplest decisions in life makes him think that humanity has become nothing more than robotic entities. When Lucian’s ex-wife Genevieve unexpectedly shows up one evening, Lucian finds himself involved with an underground resistance group, SERAPH, and learns about the truth of Brightwater from SERAPH’s leader, Dr. Morgan. Brightwater is actually inhabited by cyborgs disguised as humans and run by an artificially intelligent computer network unknown to the human citizens. Against the superior logic and strength of the AI network, Lucian must come to an understanding of what it means to be human or he risks becoming nothing more than another casualty of conquest.
