Adaptive Consequences

The year is 2037, on the wrong side of climate catastrophe.

Jun Xie is a neuroscientist at one of the United Adaptive’s labs. She’s studying a woman who possesses exceptional capabilities, what they call Pre-Emptive Perception – ‘knowing’ things before they happen. Jun’s on the cusp of a breakthrough until the woman takes her own life.
Twenty-five years later, no longer a neuroscientist but an anxious lecturer and mother, Jun’s forced to confront the past and that observation when the subject’s daughter hunts her down and won’t leave her alone.

The truth’s more disturbing than Jun could ever imagine, but someone’s determined that she’ll never find out. Can she stop them before they stop her?


The Study

Odgerel Zaye calls it ‘a gift’. The United Adaptive neuroscientists call it ‘Pre-Emptive Perception.’

Regardless of its label, the result is the same - Odgerel ‘knows’ things before they happen.
When Odgerel’s coerced into joining the United Adaptive’s brain augmentation study, she knows that she’s putting herself at risk. Some of the doctors have their own agenda and will go to any lengths to get what they want.

The thing is, she’s had visions and an inner compulsion pushing her to go – the fate of the future depends on it.

What awaits Odgerel at The Study? Will she realise her destiny before they decide it for her?
