Imagine a world where light is a privilege

In a future Australia, where light is only for the powerful and the poor struggle in darkness, Sam grew up praying for a way out. Living as the only sighted boy in a town of blind workers was tough. Discovering it didn’t have to be that way was tougher.

Sam is just one of five desperate people, each from vastly different societies in a deeply divided land, who must survive prejudice, calamity, and each other, to unlock the secrets of their world, and ultimately help a fabled AI defeat an ancient foe.
