Kenstibec was created as an invulnerable, artificial life form, designed to build a better world for humanity. That didn’t work out. A war between people and the Ficials laid waste to the world, and left Kenstibec mortal as any man.
Now, determined to recover his Ficial strength, he sets out on an insane mission to climb the battered remnant of a vast skyscraper – a dark, man-made mountain that rises all the way to a broiling wall of toxic cloud.
A prize awaits him at the summit, but it’s going to be another long journey – chased by cannibals and attack drones, through crawlspaces and lift shafts, up the crumbling edifice of man’s last great monument to greed.
