Rites Of Passage (2055)
Our rites of passage define us, even for a posthuman like Zǔ. Now 13, he is to be released into the wider world for the first time, and undergo experiences that will scar him, and shape humanity’s destiny. This is the tale of how he came out of the shadows, and into the light.
Also, flying robots, angelic visitation, virtual worlds, a bejewelled dragon, and a girl falling out of a tree.
