His forehead was beaded with sweat. His soul was full of regret, something like guilt, although he had done nothing wrong. Still, it was as if it were his fault. He is just 20 years old, and yet it seems, the nanopackage providing life source is gone. As if he were about to face death, dragging his numb body, his vision blurred, and he sensed the world around him through a veil of fog. Even the sounds reached his ears in frays, he was unable to identify them, he only perceived sound fragments. Above his hand, on a small personal holo-display, seconds were ticking by, and the credit balance was flashing, displaying a zero. It was as if whistling spasmodically, but he could not hear it, he was on edge.
It is unsure if our story takes place in the distant future or remote past. The only thing certain is that 13+1 takes us to planet Mynodis. After numerous cataclysms, people start a seemingly calm period, where everyone’s work is necessary, and everybody can live a good life in relative security and recognition. But what lies under the surface? If you could live a life where you are never sick, hardly age and have the chance to live forever, what would you do for it? Would you sacrifice your whole life in return? You can get into 13 classes, where the gap between the standards of living in the lower ones and the higher ones is inconceivable for average people. Ree Vox was born into the class of the poorest. Once in life, everybody can choose between good and bad, rich and poor life. After that, there is no way to change classes. Ree decided to live a happy but humble life with his love, but nothing happens as planned. But there might be something that is worse than death! Is immortality the most one can wish for? Excitement, adventure, love, fight, and everything you can imagine. Sit down and brace yourself, it begins!
