On this day, the Apocalypse descended into the world. Other words used to describe it includes Cataclysm, Catastrophe, and Holocaust but one word stood above all else: the Invertia Incident. This disaster wreaked havoc on the world, decimating it for an unbearable forty days and forty nights. Truly was this a disaster of Biblical proportions.
Eighty years have passed since this disaster and the date has arrived at 2042. The world is vastly different than it was in the years immediately following the Invertia Incident. This is the story of a girl who does not know life and tries to discover what it means to be alive. This is the story of her struggles as she tries to come to terms with the world, her family, and herself, in this world of superhumans.
This is a story of life and death.
