Demetrius is a GeneE, genetically engineered to be the world's best sniper. When a robot uprising forces the GeneEs to flee a hostile Earth,  he finds himself on a virgin planet with no internet, no coffee, and no guns. There, he'll face his hardest assignment yet: keeping brave -- but unenhanced -- Meghana Davies alive long enough to woo her.

I like how seamlessly you're introducing the details of your world here.

I absolutely love this concept of Peacekeeper training. But the actual idea of people serving a community of better, higher-class individuals is something reminiscent of human history. I like the clin d'oeil here :)
