She saved a human not because he was in danger, but because she yearned for the taste of his flesh.
Future Stone is not an ordinary 18-year-old human but a flesh-eater known as a Tally. Unlike her fellow tallies who possess no mind and no heart, she has them both along with the ability to communicate with humans. However, she stays clear of them in fear of being poked with needles and locked in a cage. Only the Stone family who had found and raised her knows she exists, until one day she saves a man and her world is snatched from under her feet.
Isaiah Marcel is a simple guard with a simple life. Living under his father’s title as Sergeant of the Columbia Empire’s National Security, the best thing he could do was stay out of sight and out of mind. But when he ends up on a trip in the outer-zone, he gets trapped and rescued by a talking tally. This pulls him into a world he had wanted to stay clear of. Power, money, secrecy, and betrayal are only key players to his empire’s desire to find a cure for mankind.
A Tally and a Columbian must unite to save the world from a new threat, but it may set the world back into chaos.
