A product of the hybreed programme of the Great State, Suyin is a fifteen year old hybreed soldier. The Bio-Weaponry Research Unit of the Great State has been fusing and mixing human and animal genome to create young hybreed soldiers, whose ferocious and lethal animal prowess can be unleashed with brutal efficiency against the enemies of the Great State. The treatment and training of these young hybreeds is harsh and harrowing. The hybreed soldiers are viewed as weapons, not soldiers, by the humans. Yet, there is one human soldier, who is willing to sacrifice everything, including his life, to protect Suyin. But there is much more at stake, and Suyin will be faced with an impossible choice as she learns the truth about the Great State. Can she really control her mind and her heart, or has the choice been made for her? What does it mean to love and be human?
