After humanity had been wiped off from Earth by an unexpected gamma X-ray, people built their lives on Mars, inside of the colony they call “Netericus.” There were 1,700 original survivors.
With time, modern technology divided the new colony into ‘primitive’ and ‘advanced’ humans. Any part of the body could now be replaced by non-organic material. The soul lost power over the body, making death a fun experience.
“Netericus” has 19,347 strict and 6,980 flexible rules. Loneliness is spreading between members of the community. The list of rules grows, as does the fear.
A team of scientists finally makes a long-awaited breakthrough about the location of the Pearl, the 9thplanet. A hope to start a new life and to finally be able to breathe outside awakes in many hearts again.
Pain Berchpull, a former pilot and one of ‘the primitive’ has been sent on a mission—to the enigmatic Pearl. Her team has been in the most dangerous and scariest places in the Galaxy, and they have done things that would make your skin crawl, but the arrival on the Pearl is the beginning of The End.
And no mercy.
Pain Berchpull is thrown into a hydrous (aquatic) land where ‘pain’ is not the name.

What is The Pearl?
The land of devotion and acceptance?
Or the land of suffering and violence?
The answers are in the chapters of my new story.
