They were prisoners, exiles, pawns of a corrupt government.  Now they are Dr. Rachel Dycek’s adin – surgically transformed beings who can survive new lives on the surface of Mars.  But they are still exiles from Earth forever and they are still pawns. For the adin exist to terraform Mars for  human colonists – not for themselves. Creating a new Earth, they will destroy their world, killed by their own success.  Desperate adin leader Boris launches a suicide campaign to sabotage the Mars Project, knowing his people will die in a glorious, doomed orgy of mayhem – unless the bitter Rachel Dycek can find a miracle to save the project and the race she created.
