The Story So Far...
In 2051, new technology has given rise to mankind's greatest invention, the afterlife. All it takes is a simple implant and upon your death, if you can afford it, your consciousness can be recovered and uploaded to Glory, a user-created paradise where any indulgence is possible. Miles Armstrong is a Recovery Agent, downloading the dead on the graveyard shift when he suddenly finds himself the target of a vast conspiracy that threatens to destroy Glory from within and without when one of the inventors of Glory is murdered on his shift.
In This Issue...
Miles, haunted by the trauma of his attack, begins to question everything he thought he understood about Glory and the loss of his brother. As he begins the long road to recovery, he seeks out answers to the mystery he's been thrown into.
Meanwhile, in Damascus, Journalist Tara Mitnick and her bodyguard Nakoa have to join forces with the cybernetic terrorist Amar Ahmadi to escape the city and the technological abominations that are pursuing them.
