|Plot Summary of In Gaia's Tears|
For centuries, the humans who survived the “final war” have been living in a huge bubble, following strict rules imposed by the Novi Electi. Natanae, a rebel young girl, meets Morphee and between them begins a wonderful friendship. But Morphee is the son of a Novus Electus and he knows that his entourage will never accept his new friend. One day he discovers that the bubble is not completely independent and that their leaders often go outside. He understands that the Novi Electi lie to the people in order to keep them trapped inside the babble.
He shares the secret with his new friend and, beginning with this moment they only have one thought in their minds: to escape for freedom. This opportunity appears when the bubble approaches an inhabited planet. But, in order to fulfill the dream they have to fight the rules, the society and their own families.
