Last night fire fell from the sky.
In two days' time it will fall again.
Today thirteen year-old Alex wakes to find the news full of reports of meteorites striking major world cities. Despite the devastation it all seems a world away from affecting him in his quiet home in the countryside. But when another shower of meteorites strikes his village Alex suddenly finds himself plunged into the centre of a secret group's desperate struggle against an otherworldly threat to blackmail the entire world.
Transported to the streets of a New York still reeling from the strikes, Alex must face new threats from the sinister Approximations and their mysterious masters. With the uncertain help of a girl named Star, a shadowy, unseen figure known as "Blue" and a suit packed with highly advanced technology Alex must rise to a challenge that will take him halfway across the world - and beyond.
It's time for him to become A-Wolf.
