In the 21st century, Europe is divided between the First World, made rich by nanotechnology and genetically engineered Dolls, and the Fourth World - refugees displaced by war and economic upheaval. In London, Alex Sharkey is trying to make his mark as a designer of psychoactive viruses, whilst staying one step ahead of the police and the Triads. But his troubles really start when he helps a scary, super-smart little girl called Milena quicken intelligence in a Doll, turning it into the first of the fairies.
