For first-year engineering student Mitch Campbell, his invention of the Canopy is a shortcut to acclaim—an opportunity to don the mantle of Genius, and become, with his friends, Dean and Wayne, a travel baron for a new age.
For Jin Ae, soldier of a divided nation, the Canopy threatens her country's fragile stalemate, endangers her family, and fuels the plans of a madman dictator bent on retribution. She must find a way to thwart his insanity before her country—and many others—are lost.
Duty and ambition collide when Mitch uncovers the technology's origins. Soon, he and Jin must cross boundaries to work together, dodge disaster, and save millions—all at the speed of light.
