In a world where corporate religion decides every level of existence, Dominion Capital has slated the walled city of Pottersfield for obliteration. Those within must survive or be subsumed. While the city's wealthiest residents are lifted out, the rest are trapped behind. Their lives intersect with a certainty that only some will live to see the strange new world that blooms in the exit wound of the disappeared city.
