In the ruins of what was once a global empire, the surviving immortal houses rule as monarchs over ordinary people, but the winds of change are coming. ‘Division Rate’ follows the story of an esteemed and influential immortal who wakes up groggy in a ruined laboratory, captive to a mysterious woman who says she is going to cure him of his immortality
The tables turn for Solara and Ryger as the revolt grows in the city. Solara meets a particularly savage member of The Round whose motives are similar to her own, just slightly more…barbaric. Ryger finds himself on the wrong side of the rebellion.
Solara’s history lessons open the eyes of a few rebels. Meanwhile, Ryger finds himself in desperate need of his kidnapper after his interaction with The Round while above ground.
Solara, the nostalgic scientist, becomes overwhelmed by her drunken and sulking prisoner. Reluctantly, she gets to know her immortal foe and begins to find him only moderately repugnant.
