Description

?Zakariah Davis and his wife Mia are among those infected with an alien virus that vastly prolongs life, and their blood has become a black-market staple due to its rejuvenating effects. Their teenage son Rix does not carry the Eternal virus, and Zakariah is consumed by the search for an "activated sample" with which to inoculate him. Zakariah's brain has been surgically wired for direct connection to the global computer system where economic activity is conducted by avatars in virtual cyberspace. He gets busted and burned for trying to transport Canadian grain without a permit, and escapes as a fugitive, separated from his family and friends. He is trapped by a power-group known as the Eternal Research Institute, and travels offplanet through a commercial wormhole along with his new business partner and surgical cyber-twin, Helena Sharp, who is seeking the Source of the virus for her own purposes. In the Cromeus colonies, on the other side of time and space, Zakariah will risk everything to give his son Eternal life.

display_description "Revitalizes the cyber-fiction genre with its vivid prose and believable characters . . . [This] should appeal to fans of Bruce Sterling and William Gibson" (Library Journal). Zakariah and Mia Davis have been infected with an alien virus that prolongs life-and as a result, their blood is a valuable black-market staple due to its rejuvenating effects. But the "eternal virus" has not affected their son Rix, and Zakariah is consumed with the search for an active sample to inoculate the teenager against mortality. To succeed, Zakariah surgically wires his brain for the global computer network, a virtual cyber-economy controlled by avatars. Busted for transporting grain without a permit and on the run from the government and the Eternal Research Institute, Zakariah must travel off-planet through a commercial wormhole, alongside a woman who is seeking the source of immortality for her own purposes. Now, in the Cromeus colonies on the other side of time and space, Zakariah will risk everything to give his son eternal life . . .
