An eccentric inventor who wants to save the world…
The world is on the brink of collapse. Reclusive inventor Dr. Magigate wants nothing more than the tranquility of his Cape Knot lab, the company of his digital lab mate LUCKI, and the dazzling challenges he has set for himself to stave off global calamity. Surrounded only by his robotic assistants, Magigate labors away on a secret invention that dares to alter the physics of gravity and possibly even time. When he is lured away from his work by a cunning and devastatingly beautiful tycoon who wants access to his secrets, Magigate’s priorities are suddenly turned upside down.
An ambitious tycoon who wants to rule the world…
Samantha Biggs, aka the Prophet—legendary leader of the vast Biggs Empire, newly elected Senator and founder of the Academy, a global organization charged with preserving the planet’s vital resources—has her eye on Magigate, and will stop at nothing to get what she wants. And yet, when she invites the reclusive inventor to her imperial estate, it is the Prophet whose eyes are opened to new and daring possibilities.
A sadistic scientist who wants to transform the world…
Even as Magigate labors away in isolation, there are those among his hand-picked elite cadre of Cape Knot scientists who resent the genius inventor, and who share neither his vision of the future nor his benevolent view of science and invention. But Magigate is too lost in his work and distracted by fresh desire to see his enemies coalescing around him.
And a gifted teen who wants the truth…
It’s the future. Dr. Magigate disappeared long ago, but his legend lives on. Maddy has grown up in the peaceful post-apocalyptic world enabled by his world-changing invention, Glide. She takes for granted the harmony of her world, which stands in stark contrast to the devastation that preceded it—a generation roiled by plague and war, and ruled by the Prophet and her ruthless Academy. Seeking adventure, Maddy and her friend Mike explore Magigate’s seemingly abandoned seaside mansion, where they unexpectedly meet up with a colorful band of guardians who call themselves knights, and set in motion a series of events that awakens the past and threatens to unleash deadly forces held in check since Magigate’s disappearance and the demise of the Prophet’s Academy.
