A novel of dystopian future in the tradition of Soylent Green and H.G. Wells' The Time Machine Tinker was a good citizen of the Hive—a model worker. But when he was allowed sexual activation he found Mu Ren who, like him, harbored forbidden genes. And so began the cataclysm. But in a world where half-wild humans are hunted for sport—and food—can anyone overthrow the Hive? Far greater than its stunted, pink-blooded citizens, the Hive is more than prepared to rise and crush anyone who challenges its supremacy.
