The story concerns Lif, a genetically enhanced human female (Boost), in service to Empire as an assassin (“Life Termination Specialist“).

Who is Lif‘s first target? The leader of the Resistance, ultra-capable Calile Foxstal, a redheaded Original (non-genetically enhanced human) whom many Empire Boosts have died trying to kill.

Empire has no idea where Calile is, so Lif‘s first mission is to find her. Where in the solar system is she? Why is the human Resistance — all that’s left of Free Humanity on a post-apocalyptic Terra — fighting so hard against Empire? Who, or what, is Empire?
