Your first kiss, the birth of your child, the sun warming your skin as your toes sink into the sand. Memories define us – but when the government forces the citizens of Memoria to sell them as currency, the meaning of humanity begins to shift. Eighteen-year-old Inara Vita is a feisty Original whose refusal to sell her memories marks her as a fugitive. When rogue Extractor Cyrrux saves her life, Inara is faced with the choice of trusting the enemy or leading her people in the dark. But the decision must be made quickly because the X Agency is experimenting on children, wiping their memories to create a mechanized army. Inara must fight for the survival of her people before Memoria becomes the city where both memories and innocent children go to die.
