Vivian Fahey is a regent, one of the leading lights in an overpopulated and polluted world.

National boundaries have been erased, replaced by corporate states bound by a worldwide religion based solely upon the acquisition of capital. Vivian is a ruthless businesswoman - shrewd, calculating, and cold - perfectly adapted to a society where morality has been sublimated to capital, vice is a commodity, and life itself is subject to the indifferent fluctuations of the market. Utero2VF, AKA Ice, is a clone of Vivian, the shadow to her light.

Ices destiny is to be the surrogate womb to Vivians heirs. Once her role is fulfilled, she must give up pieces of herself - her eyes, her hands, her heart - in order to extend Vivians life far beyond the norm. For most clones, drugged and complacent, it is an honor to be surgically sacrificed for the betterment of ones breed stem, but Ice is different. Ice wants more! Pregnant, naive, and afraid for her life, Ice seeks to escape from her clone colony, to live a life of light instead of shadow.

If caught, Ice stands to forfeit not only her life, but the one she carries. Who can she trust?
