Overview

Jack Roseman, experimenting at home with ways to shut down the coal-fired power generation industry that killed his father, accidentally discovers a strangely-colored mistake of a solar cell that generates an unheard-of, impossible, electrifying torrent of power.

He vows that his cell will topple the sooty smokestacks of the coal-fired power plants of Sully Energy, the largest coal conglomerate in the world.

Fearful of drawing the attention of those in power at Sully, he agonizes over how to proceed. Each course of action is both tantalizing and treacherous.

He finally enlists the help of his bawdy friend Payton and his insightful girlfriend Terin to devise a shrewd plan to announce the cell's existence to the right people. He puts his plan into action and meets with them. At first, they're skeptical—but the tests they perform thrill Jack to the stunning truth: he possesses the key to unlock the sun.

The news of his discovery travels fast—to the wrong people.

He is unwittingly, unwillingly thrown into a battle against an army of those sinister and tenacious who will stop at nothing to destroy him and the sapphire-hued miracle that he possesses.

But, they have made an error.

They have underestimated Jack Roseman.

With swift, cunning tactics, he crafts a counterattack of his own. He matches their deceit, their guile, their willingness to risk everything. But will it be enough? Will he survive his attempts to find the truth within the lies, keep Terin and Payton safe, and bring his sunlit dream to reality?
