Synopsis[edit]

The series follows Adam and Callie, two teenagers growing up in a dystopian society where various plagues have killed off a large portion of humanity. The resulting chaos stemming from the apocalyptic plagues have prompted the survivors to rank everyone in one of three categories: Leet, Mid, or Sub. Adam and Callie are part of the upper tier, the Leets, and live a relatively easy lifestyle that is threatened when their father Professor Richard Stillman is implicated with the crime of human cloning and eugenics.

Reception[edit]

AudioFile praised Francis Greenslade's narration of both books, as they felt that he added to the work as a whole.[5][6]
