Summary
"Phoenix was grown and raised among other genetic experiments in New York's Tower 7. She is an 'accelerated woman'--only two years old but with the body and mind of an adult, Phoenix's abilities far exceed those of a normal human. Still innocent and inexperienced in the ways of the world, she is content living in her room speed reading e-books, running on her treadmill, and basking in the love of Saeed, another biologically altered human of Tower 7. Then one evening, Saeed witnesses something so terrible that he takes his own life. Devastated by his death and Tower 7's refusal to answer her questions, Phoenix finally begins to realize that her home is really her prison, and she becomes desperate to escape. But Phoenix's escape, and her destruction of Tower 7, is just the beginning of her story. Before her story ends, Phoenix will travel from the United States to Africa and back, changing the entire course of humanity's future"--

Summary
In this prequel to Who Fears Death, genetically engineered Phoenix -- an "accelerated woman" designed as a biological weapon -- shakes off her complacency when her closest companion commits suicide. Determined to discover what compelled her beloved to take his own life, Phoenix escapes from the lab in which she was created and sets off into a world she's only experienced through books. Like Octavia Butler's Fledgling, this thought-provoking novel explores issues of bioethics and identity, as well as race and gender, through the lens of speculative fiction. -- Description by Gillian Speace
