Nuclear war pounds Russia. Cities are levelled. Radiation poisons the soil and drives the survivors into the ruined cities. Then a new Russian empire rises from the ashes, stronger and more terrible than its predecessors. The dictator Solntse controls everything, segregating his people, reinventing their history, even meddling with their bloodlines. His merciless Opyekuni are his right hand; they see everything and eliminate even the faintest trace of resistance. And then Sifte is found. A brilliant young girl, the daughter of traitors, has become the most gifted student at the elite Institut 1. Snatched from her mother as a baby, her past erased, her thoughts probed, Sifte is being trained by the best and she has the potential to become Solntse’s greatest weapon against the resistance. But little does she realise, she is the resistance…

'Its genius defies classification - too deep to be a thriller, too real to be sci-fi, too exciting to be satire and altogether too much fun to be literature. The result is extraordinary - an intricate, intelligent, swift-paced and satisfying masterpiece.' Robert Finn
