'You're going to be on your own, Peter, and I need to know that you're prepared. You must realise this is a battle. A battle of nature and science, good and evil. And your grandfather will do everything in his power to win you over.'

The gripping story of two young people rebelling against a world which values immortality over happiness - companion to 'The Declaration'.

The year is 2140. Peter and Anna are now living on the Outside as Legals. Impatient to see action as an agent in the Underground, Peter is tasked by Pip, its charismatic leader, to infiltrate Pincent Pharma Corporation and find out what's going on in the secret Longevity programme. Peter must feign a reconciliation with his grandfather, Richard Pincent, one of the most powerful men on the planet, whose company is chasing the holy grail of modern science - a drug which will reverse ageing and make people look young again.

But his grandfather has his own plans for Peter - plans which threaten the young couple's dreams for the future.
