Death bestows a special kind of cruelty when all of civilization is dying along with you. A special kind of freedom.
The next book in the A-Day series, the sequel to Check to the Better brings chaos. The nuclear strikes of A-Day decimated civilization. Death and destruction reign where only days before the world had lived in a time of decadent prosperity.
The last remnants of the human race survive aboard the spaceship Phoenix. The rulers of the spaceship created a set of morality lessons, called the Id to Ego Games, so that mankind can learn to live properly within its own ambitions, instincts, and knowledge. Eleanor's team directs clones through the final Games, and soon learns the value of the clones’ lives they use as morality’s currency.
