Four hundred years in the future, the Earth has turned primitive following a nuclear fire that has laid waste to civilization and nature. Though the radiation fallout has ended, for some unknowable reason every person is born with a twin. Of each pair, one is an Alpha--physically perfect in every way; and the other an Omega--burdened with deformity, small or large. With the Council ruling an apartheid-like society, Omegas are branded and ostracized while the Alphas have gathered the world's sparse resources for themselves. Though proclaiming their superiority, for all their effort, Alphas cannot escape one harsh fact: whenever one twin dies, so does the other. Cass is a rare Omega, one burdened with psychic foresight. While her twin, Zach, gains power on the Alpha Council, she dares to dream the most dangerous dream of all: equality. For daring to envision a world in which Alphas and Omegas live side-by-side as equals, both the Council and the Resistance have her in their sights.

An excellent 2nd book of the Fire Sermon trilogy. Couldn't put it down, as with the first one.
Nothing in these books reminds you are are reading words on a page. Utterly involving.
This trilogy of books should be made into a trilogy of movies.

Great follow up to The Fire Sermon. A complex world easy to get lost in. Read it over a rainy weekend and can't wait till next year when the final installment will be released!
