"They didn't want to be nothing- because of them, we are everything."
Hundreds of years spiraling into the future, the word "Legacy" blazed in the heart of all that was human. Fate was already groping for their souls, ready to pull them out of the world they'd destroyed themselves. Stubbornly using damaged but still advanced technology, they fused their genes with those of the surviving nature around them and created their own form of human- the Leif Generation. Leifs were created with all types of nature- plants, animals, even sunlight.
Cypress was born a descendant of the new humanity's first ever tribe - the Tree Leifs. Soon she'll be working among rulers. But she discovers that Trees, especially her abusive brother, hide darkness with them. Trees will do anything to keep their firm grip on the the new world.
When Cypress discovers something deadly about herself, she has no choice but to become a rebel warrior and fight against her own destiny with everything she has.
