Description
"Chromeleon Part Two: A Common Good" is a thrilling science fiction adventure. In this exciting sequel, Risk, a transgenic demon with extraterrestrial powers, Cass, a eugenic angel, and Tia, a truman concubine on the Saturn moon of Titan - challenge a godlike AI for the future of humankind. In 2190 CE, "trumans" - genetically true humans - facing the existential threat of an overcrowded, resource-depleted Earth, created CAESAR, a transcendent Artificial Intelligence to serve the greater good. Housed in an impregnable stronghold called CenterPoint Tower in what was once Yellowstone Park, CAESAR produced miraculous technologies that culminated in the creation of a multi-world Civilization in which Citizens prosper so long as the Equilibrium is sustained. For the past 300 years, the Equilibrium has been sustained under the rule of a mysterious synthetic called the Chamberlain. Trumans, however, have largely been replaced by mass-produced "gencers" - genetically-enhanced humans. Outside of a protected Sanctuary, trumans are on the brink of extinction. In "Chromeleon Part One", Tia was impregnated by Risk with a daughter who represents salvation for trumans and the end of the Chamberlain's reign. In "Chromeleon Part Two", Risk meets the simulacrum of his long-dead mother in the sentient VR known as the Est. After learning the truth about CAESAR and the link between himself and the Chamberlain, he is sent on a quest to Titan to fully unleash the alien powers that will enable him to breach CenterPoint Tower. Meanwhile Cass and Tia have fled to Sanctuary where Tia gave birth to the child, she names Eione. Cass fights to protect Tia and Eione from a vengeful Chamberlain, but ultimately Risk must confront the Chamberlain and CAESAR to save Eione and the women he loves. His success will disrupt the Equilibrium and save trumans from extinction, but to become a savior Risk must also confront the truman adage that history is written by the victors.
