By sixteen, everyone must choose. For the telekinetic youth of New Teotihuacan’s Worker City there are two choices: an enslaved life or a free death.
On an earth rampant with telekinesis, Calli Bluehair lives within one isolated city-state among many. New Teotihuacan’s protective dome and oppressive regime preserve not only its strict social classes, but also the lie that empowers the immortal class over the workers.
After her parents’ disintegration in a telekinetic storm accidentally unleashed by her own brother, Calli’s only hope of escaping a violent death in the self-indulgent underground of New Teotihuacan’s Worker City is the government run Masa Academy. Choosing to ignore the rumors that the Academy is an option worse than death, Calli determines to claw her and her little brother’s way onto the registry, no matter the personal cost.
Brown’s vivid rendering of telekinesis births a complex, mysterious and provocative world that reveals itself to the reader in a kaleidoscope of detail the longer one chooses to stare through his fractured lens.
WHAT IS SCHISM 8?
Duplicity is life. Multiplicity is power. Creation mythology has preserved the two basic building blocks of life as “The Tree of Life” and the “Knowledge of Good and Evil.” A select few have come to understand these ancient forces according to their modern scientific labels: the Lost Gene and the Twitch Retrovirus. One enables immortality. The other unlocks the human mind.
For thousands of years, these two foundational elements have been kept isolated…with the exception of an event known as the Great Schism. Since the Schism, eight parallel universes have clashed on a path toward cataclysm or restoration. Only those who envision the Schism can control whose image the universe reflects.
