city half destroyed by drought and conflict The city is dangerous littered with discarded experiments from the Company a biotech firm now derelict and punished by the unpredictable predations of a giant bear Rachel ekes out an existence in the shelter of a run down sanctuary she shares with her partner Wick who deals his own homegrown psychoactive biotech br br One day Rachel finds Borne during a scavenging mission and takes him home Borne as salvage is little more than a green lump plant or animal but exudes a strange charisma Borne reminds Rachel of the marine life from the island nation of her birth now lost to rising seas There is an attachment she resents in this world any weakness can kill you Yet against her instincts and definitely against Wick s wishes Rachel keeps Borne She cannot help herself Borne learning to speak learning about the world is fun to be with and in a world so broken that innocence is a precious thing For Borne makes Rachel see beauty in the desolation around her She begins to feel a protectiveness she can ill afford br br i He was born but I had borne him i br br But as Borne grows he begins to threaten the balance of power in the city and to put the security of her sanctuary with Wick at risk For the Company it seems may not be truly dead and new enemies are creeping in What Borne will lay bare to Rachel as he changes is how precarious her
