In our timeline, the Twin Towers attack was a horrific but isolated terrorist event.
Not in Kaia's.
Already living in a society of constant scrutiny and fear, Kaia finds her old life completely destroyed when a routine trip ends with her accused of terrorism and dragged into a new and high stakes world.
It is a world of lost children and covert ops, and of people with the power to alter the elements themselves, from creating tornadoes of oxygen to shifting the carbon in pencil lead into diamonds..
Dropped in the middle of this globe-spanning conflict, Kaia could find everything she ever wanted, or she could lose more than she ever thought possible.
And so could everyone else.
