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.

39. 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.

According to the Book of Regeneration, "Any revolt or rebellion related to the Numbers must be met with swiftness and certainty. If the Numbers were to leave Manhattan and roam the country freely, we can only assume the effects would be as catastrophic as they were when the Numbers first came to be. Less than three hundred years ago evolution failed us and brought forth the Numbers, detriments to human society rather than the assets evolution should have created. A great division between humans and Numbers came to be when the Numbers claimed to be the superior beings. They acted out in a tyrannical manner, killing, stealing, and destroying because they believed they had the right to do so. This is why man and Numbers cannot coexist."
