This YA-adult thriller takes place in the Zion Republic, a remnant of the American partition. Jason is being raised in an institution, the Centre, as a source of spare body parts for an identical twin, who is being groomed for eventual leadership in Zion. Jason grows to manhood, surrounded by cruel Centre keepers, sharing a strange mental bond with his twin, though neither is aware of the existence of the other. Unwilling to submit to an eventual "harvest" by Centre surgeons when his twin becomes ill, Jason plots his escape from the Centre, placing him at odds with a wild and hostile environment, his twin and Zion's highest authorities.
