Rolando “Flux” Galvin and his best friend Morwenna “Hag” Pierce are two of the world’s best electronic gamers. The two are unexpectedly brought together during a global crisis. Massive reflecting “solar arrays”, orbiting the Earth to reflect the sun and reduce climate change, have been hacked by the enemy and their drug lord backers and used to target the Earth instead.
Flux is a fourteen year old Irish boy living in northern Queensland near a major spaceport. Secretly, he has been flying online military drone missions using his pilot Dad’s login. When military bases across the world are also attacked, every available pilot is called on for the defence.
Flux, Hag and their friends volunteer to help. At the crucial moment, however, a military attack on the spaceport by heavily armed soldiers cuts the power and puts the mission in peril. Meanwhile, in another part of the world, one of the enemy hackers has been targeted by assassins, but escapes with injury. Captured, she could crack the codes and save Flux, but only if they get to her before the assassin does!
