Synopsis
Enter the world of Henry Roach-Dairier: a future world where humans no longer exist. Insects, greatly enlarged and intelligent, dominate. Ants live comunal lives, dedicated to each other, while roaches are materialistic and self-centered. But both species are chemically dependent on plastic, mined from the ruins of the extinct Duo Pods, and the most valuable resource of the insect world. Henry, son of a roach adopted by ants, tries to bridge the canyon of differences between these vying ideologies and cultures. New South Dairy Colony 50, the second book of the trilogy, opens with Henry as a nymph, in a coma after accidentally ingesting a bad combination of medicines in his physician father's lab. His ant grandfather, Antony Dairier, decides it's time to straighten out his grandson. He reveals to Henry the details of his own life: the war and the emotional pain which resulted in his dedication to the ideal of the experimental ant/roach colony, New South Dairy 50.
