Electricity is the story of a man, his father, some extraterrestrials, and what happens to them when the Sun enters its most violent period in recorded history. Charlie Swift is a 32-year-old Bostonian who needs direction. His father, Vic, needs healing. Both are about to become central players in a planetary drama. Charlie is chief of staff to an old college friend who is now a Boston city councilor. But a bribery scandal convinces Charlie it's time for a change. His next move is a radical one: He becomes the Aurora Seeker, running excursions for people who want to see the Northern Lights. The Sun has been unleashing increasingly powerful storms, disrupting life on Earth and igniting aurora at latitudes that have never seen them before. Meanwhile, incomprehensible lifeforms may have taken up residence in Earth's outer atmosphere. What will happen when the Sun sends the mother of all solar storms heading our way?
