In the future, humans will no longer rule the world. Elites have taken control of civilised society; humans exist merely to serve. Elites are genetically modified, technologically enhanced versions of humankind. Originally designed and created by man, they were intended to save humanity. Instead, they have slowly usurped humans from leadership and have made them their subjects.Animosity between Elites and humans is fierce, and many rebels fight back against Elite rule.

This is a teenagers book, if you are an adult move on. Very American with some background lift music. Definitely Sci-Fi light.

only for the ignorant

Very disappointing book. Plot points include, petrified elements (?????), Inca warriors who can ride horses and fire pistols. Musket fire that is the same as machine gun fire. This was a formulaic piece of rubbish only for the very ignorant
