But all is not Utopian in this brave, new world. McVee, SILs designer, commander and deceitful catalyst, is under siege. SILs first inhabitants oppose new comers- McVee favors new blood, new ideas. A coup leads to death and SIL enters Earths political intrigue as powerful forces vie for control. McVees son is targeted, and he is forced to flee Earth. Meanwhile, teenage Silians experiment with altered states of consciousness, as powerfully dangerous as excitingly seductive. Is it truly mind expanding or simply life threatening? The answer contains surprising implications for SIL, and all of humanity.
