TBR Featured Review

The most unique sci-fi novel I’ve read in years.

 Science Fiction

 At the heart of a global economic recovery effort, the mysterious Secretary General of the Order of Nations Enterprise presides over a vast infrastructure project, the VAC.  The VAC connects the wealth and civilized world of thirty-two Mega-Alpha cities through underground trains in vacuum chamber tunnels traveling in excess of 8,000 kmh. 

Seventeen-year-old Jada Brilliant adjusts to life after losing her father, anxiously awaiting the next chapter of her life in college—until a chance trip to an Outlier City with her grandfather results in a freak accident in the Everglades, leaving her in sole possession of a secret formula capable of world domination.

Left alone, fleeing from the wilderness into the world’s new cosmopolitan capitol, Jada is in a race for her life to keep her grandfather’s legacy from what she believes is corporate espionage, only to realize she is being pursued by the most powerful man on earth. 

When these two worlds collide, Jada’s new passage to adulthood presses the envelope of courage, love, trust, and survival.
