From the introduction:
‘And trust me that you can do something. You are not as helpless, as much a pawn, as they would have you believe. Each of us can effect change... You can move the world.’

It is a world very much like your home world, but viewed through smoke-tinted glass. On the surface, everything seems much the same; but bleaker and more cynical. Gothic style building loom ominously over rain slick streets. Gruesome and violent crimes seem to happen on a daily basis in every poorly lit alley, and people seem to turn a blind eye to it.
