The story is suitable for middle-school age students and older.  Although there are scenes describing violent encounters, some of which are lethal, none are graphic or gory.  Two key characters die in the narrative:  one from natural causes and one who is killed.  There is no foul language, vulgarity, or sexual situations.  There are hints of romance.

The genetics component is suitable for high-school age students and adults.  Ethical issues regarding the treatment of people with different characteristics and the (mis-)use of genetic engineering are threads throughout the narrative.
