Wonderful story with great character development. Tyger is the leader of the Windriders, a gang that rides the currents, and decides that peace must be made among the street gangs in New Seattle. New Seattle is a city enclosed by a dome that protects its inhabitants from the severe and possibly life-threatening environment that Earth has become. The Patriarchy controls the only exit out of the Dome and controls the lives of the citizens. They also limit the resources that citizens have access to and encourage the existance of street gangs in order to maintain the Patriarchy's plan. This is the first book in a trilogy.
