The Surgeon Generals are liars.
The lives squirming inside the guts of Katia and the other clones aren’t parasites.
They are the FREEBORN.
As Katia’s stomach swells, she experiences feelings she has never known, discovers that the infection actually causes the spontaneous eruption of what was once called ‘pregnancy’, and joins the rebels in their insane plan to shift the power. The militant Doctors and assassin Candystripers are proficient at ending the little uprisings which challenge their illusion of peace. Only, they have never faced a threat like the plot Katia and Adam are involved in.
The rebels plan to infect every man, woman, and child on the planet with the Freeborn parasite the leaders are seeking to destroy. Not only do they have the guts to do it, but they also have the means. Katia’s fear of tight places is nothing compared to her fear of what will happen to every clone in the world, herself included, if she and the other rebels should fail—or even more so if they actually succeed.
