The thrilling conclusion of the Bloodlight Chronicles trilogy. Set in a world where global economic activity is carried out in a virtual-gaming realm, a blood-transmitted virus with rejuvenating effects has become a black-market staple, forcing infected 'Eternals' into a tightly knit underground where they must hack the V-space for food and shelter. After their leader, Helena Sharp, begins to mysteriously degenerate and flees, the Eternal community is thrown into chaos. When the young clone Niko discovers that her gifted daughter, Sienna, carries the future heritage of humanity in her augmented DNA, Niko travels home to confront her progenitor, Phillip Davis, with a litany of experimental abuse. Phillip has fully integrated his persona with the AI Beast who controls V-space, and with the aid of a charismatic avatar, he embarks on a program of manipulation and control that will redefine the boundaries of death and consciousness.Sujet(s): Viruses | Science fiction, Canadian | Human-alien encounters | Canadian fiction | Virtual reality | Cybernetics | Genetic engineering | ImmortalismÉditeur original: ECW PressLangue(s): EnglishISBN: 9781770902510
