Invie Beverly | 1 comments So far, the only thing I can remember is that there were homo-sapiens, and homo-cognisens ( spelling? ), and even though the latter were the one-up of homo sapiens, they were looked down on. Those who had the trait were ostracized and given medicine/drugs that repress it? Maybe?

A girl meets a male homo-c, and though she's told to stay away, she doesn't. There's a fire at a club, they go and hide in a cave. She doesn't see him at some point, so she goes to his apartment and he's sick?

He is given some sort of drug and undergoes mental training in his mind somewhere?

I read this book around 2010.
It's driving me nuts, I can't figure it out.

What's the time period and location - distant future Earth, country/region/big city/small town, fantasy world, etc.?

How is this society different from today's world (e.g., social values, politics, environment)?
