In the year 2101, mankind has been replaced by the next step in evolution, bio-engineered humans called "Greenies". After the fall of the world to greed, climate change, and war, original humans struggled to survive. Driven underground, starved, deprived of oxygen, and hunted, they have only one shot left at surviving through a desperate plan; Synthesis. One Greenie finds herself caught in the cross-hairs of one man's ambitious bid to save the remaining humans. Tiger Lily, a second generation Greenie, is abducted by the leader of the underground. Despite her fear, she is drawn to Stone. He wants her, but Lily is determined to resist. Will his plan work? Will Synthesis be the Hail Mary original humans need to ensure the continued existence of mankind or will the plan fail, dooming the last survivors to extinction? Worse, will Lily lose her heart to a man living on borrowed time?
