Plot synopsis:

The year is 2525, and the world has been turned upside-down. Monstrous airborne creatures known as the Baileys have driven the world s population underground, and taken over the Earth s surface.

Over centuries of Bailey domination, mankind s subterranean universe has grown into an immense labyrinth of shafts and corridors. The human populations inhabiting these domains have evolved independently over hundreds of years, giving rise to a vast array of diverse cultures. Bailey-engineered Betrayer robots, outwardly indistinguishable from humans, roam among the people, ready to warn their masters of any impending insurrection.

While most of humanity has abandoned hope of ever reclaiming the surface of the Earth, there are those who are still fiercely committed to that cause. Among these brave souls are the female warriors Hel and Sarge. They are joined by Cleopatra, who wakes up 500 years after being cryogenically frozen during breast implant surgery, and Mauser, the android that runs their lab. They are united in the most courageous of quests: to restore humanity to its rightful place on the planet.
