Aria is a seventeen year-old Dweller who lives in Reverie in what is called a Pod, a dome-like structure that protects its inhabitants from the outside wasteland called the Death Shop where violent energy storms can strike and kill entire villages. Her world is technological. She wears a Smarteye device that allows her mind to go into virtual worlds where she can experience almost anything virtually. Perry is an Outsider who lives with a tribe in a small village. He is a tall warrior who hunts with bow and arrow and has a heightened sense of smell and night vision. To the Dwellers, Outsiders are considered savage, wild and diseased.
Note: This book is rated V = fight scenes and killing with bow and arrow and knives.
