On their eighteenth birthday, every young person in the Republic of Novatech goes through The Binding. It's a day when their consciousness is irrevocably tethered to The
Architect, the all-powerful AI governing their society. For Alex, this day marks the beginning of a new life, one where her every move is watched and controlled for the greater good. This binding, in turn,  empowers her to actively contribute to the welfare of society.

But when she stumbles upon a hidden message from her late Uncle, doctor Timothy Trent, a world of secrets emerges.

With her friends Maya and Kai, she embarks on a journey for truth. As they unravel the Architect's dark secrets, they stand on the brink of rebellion against a society built on lies. Will they survive the labyrinth of lies, or become pawns in the Architect's game? Who can Alex really trust?
