What if death didn't apply to you?

What if you could have infinite second chances at life?

That's what the Numbers seem to have, endless chances at life. They are mutants who come back to life every time they die. But, with the Numbers System in place, their chances of survival are zero. The Number System requires them to be tagged with numbers on their necks that drop as fifty more Numbers are executed each week using the chemical Agent-10, a chemical that strips Numbers of they're regenerative abilities.

Indie Caserento is a seventeen year old Number living with her sister, Adrian, in Manhattan. Working for a band of thieves has made them wealthier than most Numbers, but still on a count down to their deaths. They think they have a few more years left until their numbers are up, but when Adrian steals from the Monitors both of their numbers are dropped to zero. Their deaths seem imminent until the government makes them an offer that could change everything.


1. The Book of Regeneration

The Axis Dynasty, our regal and great country, has drafted this book for the purpose of educating its citizens about the history of their noble efforts to eradicate the Numbers for the safety of all citizens. The Book of Regeneration is a book of law and history. It shall be a mandatory reading for all citizens living in the free world.

The Book of Regeneration states, "The mutants or so called "Numbers" are the work of evil and must be treated as such. Their unnatural ability to regenerate to their former selves even in death is clearly the work of a dark force, a force that will not be tolerated under the new order of Axis. All mutants  are to be reported to the government of Axis, who will promptly move said mutants to a proper containing facility on the abandoned island of Manhattan where they will await execution. To ensure efficiency in the system of execution each mutant will be tagged with a number and as time passes this number will drop indicating that they are moving closer to their execution. Every week numbers 1-50 will drop to 0, then be injected with Agent-10, the only chemical that can take away a mutants immortality, and executed. Lack of compliance with the system will result in the dropping of one's number. Here forth these mutants will be called Numbers and everything you read here is true."
