A future tale where privilege comes at a price.
"It’s important that you acclimatise yourself to the Professor’s appearance. The effects of Rapamycin on a Cherished One can disturb some people, but I’m sure you’ll be fine."
The Abodes of the Guilty by Michael Kelly has a truly interesting concept with Cherished Ones being nearly 200 years old and living in their own communities, as a safety protocol. However, there is a lot of vagueness about this dystopian society, and the characters lack any real depth. The ending is a nice little wrap up of events. I wish there had been more story and less telling.
