A chance encounter with a fugitive
has turned Christine's life into a nightmare.
Survival is hard enough in the
poverty-stricken streets of the Lower Blocks, and this woman is far from the
first to flee the Engineers who oversee the City. But now Christine's a target:
hunted by the aristocracy, her future uncertain, and past laid bare. And a
person with Christine's powers can't afford to be caught.
Humanity built the Foundation to
elevate themselves from the poisoned earth, but Christine and Ilsa must choose
whether to descend to hell below, or remain in hell above.
post-apocalyptic authors Nicolas Wilson (Homeless), and Michelle Browne (The
Underlighters) comes Euphoria/Dysphoria, a biopunk dystopia.

she’d probably have to hide out for months to work through all of the changes
needed to disguise herself. She thought of the other grey-market acquirers she
knew and wondered which of them liked her enough to shelter her.
She cursed the
woman running alongside her and herself for getting drawn into this in the
first place. It was too late now—she could only hope that she could make her
downfall have as great an impact as possible by seeing Ilsa through this.
Tearing her mind from the future, she looked at for exits. No time to worry and
fuss. She just had to keep moving.
