THE FORGOTTEN

 

When the Psy Council proposed, in the year 1969, to instigate the Silence Protocol, a protocol that

would wipe all emotion from the Psy, they were faced with a seemingly insurmountable problem—a lack

of racial uniformity.

Unlike the cold, isolated Psy of today, the Psy then were an integral and entangled part of the fabric of

the world. They dreamed, they cried, and they loved. Sometimes, as was only natural, those they loved

came from a race other than their own.

Psy mated with changelings, married humans, bore children of mixed blood. Predictably, these racially

impure Psy were among the most virulent opponents of the Silence Protocol. They understood what

drove their brethren to denounce emotion—the fear of vicious insanity, of losing their children to the

madness sweeping through their ranks in an inexorable tide—but they also understood that in embracing

Silence, they would lose everything and everyone they loved. Forever.

By the year 1973, the two factions were at an impasse. Negotiations ensued, but neither side was willing

to compromise and the Psy broke in two. The majority chose to remain in the Psy Net and give their

minds to the emotionless chill of absolute Silence.

The fate of the minority, some with mixed blood themselves, others with human and changeling mates, is

not so clear. Most believe they were eliminated by Council assassins. Silence was too important—the

Psy race’s last hope—to chance disruption by a rebellious few.

There is also a rumor that the rebels died in a mass suicide. The final theory states that those long-ago

rebels were the first patients of involuntary “rehabilitation” at the newly christened Center, their minds

wiped, their personalities destroyed. Since the Center’s methods were experimental back then, any

surviving patients would have come out in a vegetative state.

Now, as spring dawns over a hundred years later, in the year 2080, there is only one consensus: the

rebels were neutralized in the most final way.

The Psy Council does not allow dissent.

 

CHAPTER 1

Talin McKade told herself that twenty-eight-year-old women—especially twenty-eight-year-old women

who had seen and survived what she had—did not fear anything as simple as walking across the road

and into a bar to pick up a man.

Except, of course, this was no ordinary man. And a bar was the last place she’d expected to find Clay,

given what she had learned about him in the two weeks since she’d first tracked him down. It didn’t

bode well that it had taken her that long to screw up the courage to come to him. But she had had to be

sure.

What she had discovered was that the Clay she’d known, the tall, angry, powerful boy , had become

some kind of high-ranking enforcer for the dominant leopard pack in San Francisco. Dark River was
