The big starship Ark was once introduced on a voyage of 10000 years from an Earth close to cave in. Its project was once to hold a element of the human race to a brand new domestic circling one other megastar, yet, centuries after its departure, the descendants of the unique team not do not forget that they're on a city-sized spaceship, and comprehend not anything of the Ark’s project, nor of the starry universe outdoors. The Prophetsy, a theocracy in keeping with slavery and terror, has governed over lots of the Ark for longer than someone now residing can be mindful, and it has simply succeeded in conquering the few closing loose areas of the send. but there are chinks within the monolithic tyranny…
Danil has been a slave on account that he was once a tender boy, yet his spirit hasn't ever been damaged, and his prepared brain sees ways in which the theocracy can be overthrown and envisions new guns which can in achieving that victory.
Annaya is the daughter of the Prophet Polldor, undisputed ruler of the Prophetsy. She is much extra clever and strong-willed than her brother, yet just a male inheritor can develop into the following Prophet. To her father, she is simply a pawn, to be married off to a robust best friend. yet she is set that may not occur, no matter if she has to by some means overthrow either her father and the Prophetsy itself.
Olen,the Prophet’s son, is concerned to develop into the following Prophet. he'll cooperate in his sister’s plans so long as he thinks they are going to bring about his assuming the throne and gaining absolute energy, yet he's a extra risky best friend than Annaya realizes.
These 3, every one with a unique reason, will try to alter the process historical past for the Ark. yet no matter if they repair freedom to their synthetic international, can they realize the character of that international, and regain the data worthwhile for the winning final touch of its mission?
