Description

How did we get here? Where are we going? Those are the questions Josh Driscoll, a teenager living in 'The Station', a city built one kilometer beneath the surface of a frozen, lifeless earth, is determined to answer. Josh comes to believe that the 'Black Heart', a computer complex buried in a sector critically damaged in a massive asteroid strike centuries ago, holds the answers to all his questions, and is vital to their future survival. When the Station's governing Council, of which his own father is a member, announces plans to reconstruct the sector and demolish the Black Heart to make way for badly needed living space, Josh forms a movement and leads a desperate battle to stop the demolition. But can his tiny army thwart the all-powerful Council in time to avert catastrophe? A page-turning fusion of mystery, adventure, and coming-of-age that will keep you absorbed until the final electrifying twist.

Author Biography

Jay Storey has traveled the world, passing through many places in the news today, including Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and the Swat valley in Pakistan. He has worked at an amazing variety of jobs, from cab driver to land surveyor to accordion salesman to software developer. Jay is the author of two novels, THE ARX, and ELDORADO, a novella, CHOPPER MUSIC, and a number of short stories. A new novel is in the works for 2016, and another sometime in early 2017. His stories always skirt close to the edge of believability (but hopefully never cross over). He is attracted to characters who are able to break out of their stereotypes (as Jackson Reilly does in CHOPPER MUSIC) and transform themselves. He loves both reading and writing, both listening to and playing music, and working with animals. He's crazy for any activity relating to the water, including swimming, surfing, wind-surfing, sailing, snorkeling, and scuba diving. Jay is married and lives in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
