Wasteland salvager Valentine Weis yearns for a better life in the gleaming metropolis of Salt Lake City, where the means to transition are in reach. But earning enough money for a city visa is impossible. A disembodied A.I. named Osric—uploaded into a handsome android body without his consent—has been sent to offer Valentine a visa in exchange for a job that seems straightforward: retrieve an escort service’s missing androids. 

Finding them means navigating both pirate territory and his growing feelings for Osric. Plus there’s a problem: the androids are becoming self-aware, and they don’t want to return to their old lives as escorts. 

The visa reward is tempting and success means Osric can appeal his punishment, but forcing the androids back goes against Valentine’s conscience. He’ll need to risk his own dream to ensure the A.I. also have the chance to live as their true selves.
