Before Alex Watson stumbled across that mysterious rock in the foothills of North Carolina, his biggest concern was finding a job after graduation where he could do some good in the world. Now he’s running for his life, fleeing assassins sent by the most powerful men in America, and trying to get into a war-torn country that might just hold the secret to the global energy crisis.
The first thing Alex notices about the rock unearthed by the landslide is it glows. The second is that it has a strange effect on any electronics around it. This is no normal specimen from the geology lab; this is a meteorite with enough clean energy to power the United States forever.
Alex takes his discovery to a prominent green energy firm, not realizing that the company is a front funded by Big Energy. Too late, he discovers that their real mission is to bury promising technologies—and the people who discover them.
Alex flees, his enemies hot on his trail. With the help of an underground group called Occupy the World, he learns about a more powerful meteorite that’s still out there, hidden in one of the most unstable, dangerous corners of Africa. If Alex and his friends can get to it, he’ll have an energy source that could power the entire world. But only if his pursuers don’t get to him first…
