In the near future, renewable resources power cars and homes now that oil supplies have vanished. Air travel is no longer possible, but a commercial teleportation route exists between London and New York. Until today...
A seventeen-year-old girl awakes in a field with concussion. A homeless boy is standing over her. Nearby, London City Teleport is no more than a pile of burning rubble.
Her name is Nova. Her father is missing, presumed killed in the explosion that has claimed close to five thousand lives. The exact circumstances remain a mystery, but it has the Anti-Tech Movement written all over it.
Nova's only chance of uncovering the truth behind the tragedy is this street kid and a man named Arthur Symes. But is one of them hiding more than just his true nature? And is the other a borderline psychopath or is he suffering a break in his moral compass?
With her memory slowly trickling back, and as the sole survivor of Black Thursday, it makes Nova a girl who knows too much.
