Many thousands of years in the future, a growing resistance to mandatory genetic review and modification at birth places the entire human race in jeopardy in this novel by the author of the classic Dune.

Public Law 10927 was clear and direct. Parents were permitted to watch the genetic alterations of their gametes by skilled surgeons … only no one ever requested it.

When Lizbeth and Harvey Durant decide to invoke the Law, when Dr. Potter does not rearrange the most unusual genetic structure of their future son, barely an embryo growing in the State’s special vat—the consequences of these decisions threaten to be catastrophic.

Never before has anyone dared defy the Rulers’ decrees … and if they find out, it is well known that the price of disobedience is the extermination of the human race.

    " The technique worked okay in Dune, but I got tired of reading the inner thoughts of multiple characters closely interleaved- and it's confusing early on when the characters aren't yet that distinct. "

    " Nicely written, has a lot of detail for the bio-engineering part, it represent its caracters well, and the story has good foundations. But the ending is kind of forced upon the reader and disappointing. "
