Edge of Light
by Jay Antani
It’s 2030. A meteor explodes over Los Angeles, triggering chaos and panic. For 17-year-old Dev Harrison, the event coincides with a strange, dream in which his long-disappeared physicist-father reveals to him the location where he’s hidden a reality-bending scientific secret. Eager to see if there’s truth to the dream, Dev hits the road with his besties Abby and Conner. But the kids’ journey is far more dangerous than they imagined as they encounter fanatics, mysterious drones, and a ruthless spy. Worst of all are the “crawlers”–not human, not animal, terrifying creatures whose appearance in the wake of the meteor is no coincidence. Courage, loyalty, wits: The friends want for none of these, but their adventure will demand much more. Especially after Dev realizes he’s all that stands between protecting his father’s legacy and global forces hell-bent on altering the fate of the universe.
