The stories trace five Camilles from 2025 to 2425, a period in which the human population, having at first risen from eight billion to ten billion, has dropped to three billion and only half of the species alive in 2015 still exist. Many humans have been modified to take on aspects of other species; in the case of the Camilles, the monarch butterfly.
