Aberdeenshire 2050 — In a world transformed by climate change, Scotland has become a war zone. City gangs battle homesteaders for food supplies. An unstoppable plague kills one in ten. A new race is born: golden-eyed and wild, they reject their mothers and live apart, speaking no recognizable language. Alienated from society, lupans are even hunted for sport.
For thirty years Linella Sienkiewicz has taken in climate refugees. She has protected lupans from captivity and death. But the Scottish government, responding to public xenophobia, plans to imprison the refugees and destroy the lupan colony. The only man who can help her is Scott Maguire, a lawyer on the run.
Two men seek an immortality machine in an alien world. But their discovery of immortality will destroy their own humanity. Their quest takes them through a world of machines activated by sound, bizarre sports and a labyrinth of violent androids.
