"Wishing for once her employers could have let her stay dead, Special Operative Angel Leonard is once again revived to fight in a future where technology eliminates freedom of thought, blends real and virtual; where her own mind is her worst enemy." Primed is an innovative and insightful, hard science-fiction thriller (cyberpunk), set in the not-too-distant future. Instantaneous space transit technology has brought humanity to the brink of a massive colonial expansion across the Orion Arm of the Milky Way. The United Nations of Earth declared martial law, justifying unprecedented violations of privacy and human rights throughout the colonies to suppress the armed insurgency of the Orion Arm Conglomerate for Independence, a group of trans-global corporations vying for freedom from UNE's proscriptive laws and unfair colonial taxation. Hopelessly outnumbered, the O.A.C.I. turns to outlawed human cloning and memory transfer technology to revive fallen operatives in their private army. Fiercely loyal to the cause, fearless of death, O.A.C.I.'s veterans return from their graves time and time again, their lifetimes of combat experience and skills restored, carrying out a series of tactical strikes to thwart UNE's overstretched attempt to consolidate power.
