There is no way out. The house takes them, flies in the web, and won´t let them go. The house is beautiful and silent as a tomb. There are children at play, pretending to live as their souls are sucked out of them. There is no way out. The doors are locked and the windows hammered shut. Some have been there for years, their minds warped into insanity by the fear and pain. Curt is new and can´t understand why no one speaks and why the only sounds come from the night. He wonders what it is that comes out of the basement when the sun goes down. There is no way out until you are cold and stiff. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeffrey Kyle Carpenter.

Welcome to a world controlled by the great spirit and science Margas, a world that has crawled out of years of devastating viral plagues only to find that the immuno-nanotech sentinels meant to protect and enhance a whole generation of children are rising from within to become an even greater threat. Warped at the genetic level to mimic characters of a sophisticated life-support game, the Children of the Reckoning must struggle against the artificial intelligence reaching for their minds through their own bodies and face the stigma of ´´otherness´´ in a world of deadly political intrigue and strict social controls. For monk Ianto Tobali, his gift from the time of the Great Reckoning is fast becoming a sought-after commodity in the silent war against the game´s artificial intelligence, Nuress, and domination of both realities. Because he is the only child of god who can ride the nanotech links to break things, he is being manipulated to stand as a living firewall between the worlds of humanity and the game. But even his tormentors underestimate the bond created between him and the one living mind at play in the game, the consciousness of a young man named Samu´el Stelle. 1. Language: English.
