Five thousand years in the future, the Earth is dead. A galactic network of terraformed planets, connected by teleportation portals, is populated by the genetically improved Descendants. The original Humans, labeled dangerous and barbaric, are kept under constant surveillance.
In this seemingly peaceful society, Dora Dana Dasnan, a gifted Visionaire, serves the leading race of Descendants by reporting her Visions of the future. But when she witnesses a forbidden Vision — an intimate contact with a Human man — her very life is in danger.
She needs to escape before her masters find out, but in this disciplined and controlled society that is impossible. Just when Dora loses all hope, a teleportation error sends her to a new and astoundingly beautiful world. Soon, she meets the natives, and as she adapts to an alien culture, she also reveals a tightly kept secret of her own.
