In a science-dominated world where having a religion earns you a bullet in the head, Simma and Basil are two of the most-wanted criminals of year 79 N.A.
°Being proud Muslims.
°Harbouring fellow fugitives from all around the world.
°Spreading the word of Islam.
°Possession of illegal documents about Islam.
They are being hunted by the Reaction, a group of anti-religious, secular scientists, who now control the planet--or what's left of it.
They have nothing but their faith and each other. And for a long time, that was enough.
Then they hear of an enclave, a safe refuge, where they can live as free believers, and suddenly they want more.
Simma is sceptical, with many reservations, but Basil manages to convince her this is their best option.
So their search begins. Only, things don't go according to plan.
Suddenly Simma finds herself without Basil for the first time in her life, having to fend for her people, with the help of Basil's brother, the darkly intense, stone-hearted Ilyas.
Regular is not a word to describe Simma.
Not even close.
Regular girls don't have a tiger for a pet, they don't accessorize with bows and arrows, they don't consider a scar running down the side of their face a blessing, and they are not hunted for being Muslim.
The only thing that makes her feel like a regular girl is the love of her life, Basil.
That is until she loses him.
