You need to. Before Hollywood makes it into a movie and ruins it. :/
Anyways, here is the plot;
The great country of freedom, the United States of America, is now no longer. The states that were contained in its borders are no longer. Alaska has been absorbed by Canada and the Hawaiian Islands have been reclaimed by the Pacific. In place of the states are now three different countries; the military dictatorship of Xananius, the monarchy of Calluanul, and the republic of Eris.
Welcome to the 25th century ACE. The world has grown into new technology and new experimentation. Now, living in the world with humans are hybrids; human/animal splicers made by scientists across the world. When the scientists made more than they originally meant, they were prosecuted. Then, they were all sent to Calluanul to form their own people since they had become quite numerous as they bred amongst themselves. Humans who had lived in the old country fled either to Xananius (who harbored deep hatred for the hybrids) or Eris (where hybrids were welcomed to live equally with the humans).
However, in 2529 ACE, things started to change. Xananius declared war on Calluanul. Refugees fled to Eris which destabilized their economy. Wider gaps were made between the rich and the poor. Street gangs rose throughout the poor boroughs, having been kept to the shadows long enough. In Calluanul, things have taken a nasty turn for the worst. 2535 ACE, the royal family has forced its heirs to flee to Eris.
Isedon Miashimi, whose blood is shared with one of the richest families in Eris, was raised as a gutter rat. Scarred, distant, and rather crass, she knows the alleys and the street gangs by name. How? She was raised by them in between regular beatings from her abusive parents. But one day she meets a strange group of travelers, asking for asylum.
