It started small—with several isolated riots.

But the riots got bigger.

And bigger.

Rich people got scared, convincing the country's security elite to band together. Band together they did. Corporations began operating as countries once did—producing, trading and consuming. They dot the landscape of what once was the United States, constructing impenetrable walls to keep undesirables out. With no one to revolt against, the rioters were left to their own devices; abandoned to fend for themselves in a lawless society.

The Lord Corporation is one such company. After cops teamed up with New York society; they swiftly closed off the city, rebranding it as "City Center." But tourism is slow when you have a militarized border wall. It's a challenge for Felix Lord, the Chairman of the Lord Corporation. But in reality, it's his second-in-command, Haman Bledsoe, who runs the show.

Orphaned at a young age, Aster lives with her guardian, Matthias, in the heart of City Center. Aster has beauty and brains. She'll need both when Haman begins questioning the genetic backgrounds of those in City Center. As Haman moves forward with a plan to canvas the city, Aster's world begins to crumble. Those rioters? They are her ancestors. A problem, because Haman wants to "cleanse" City Center population down to the genetically preferred.

They have one last hope. The Chairman's wife, Barbie, has recently been deposed. It means a slot has opened up with the very person Aster needs to keep herself, and her people, alive. But how can she reach the Chairman? He lives in an inaccessible structure known as the Gilded Tower, where the uninvited can be shot on sight. Aster only has her God-given looks, and a little thing called faith. Will it be enough to convince the out-of-touch Felix Lord? Or will Aster and her kind perish under Haman's wicked plan?
