Jay Allan Storeyabout this book: How did we get here? Where are we going? These age-old questions take on a unique meaning for Josh Driscoll, a teenager living in 'The Station', a city built one kilometer beneath the surface of a frozen, lifeless earth.
Josh is determined to find the answer, but he goes too far when he steals a space-suit and travels to the surface to explore. As punishment, the governing Council, of which his own father is a member, force him to enroll as a novice monk at Saint Carmine's, the Station's resident monastery.
At first desperate to escape, Josh finds himself drawn into the monastery's scriptures, which hint at the Station's origins, all traces of which were obliterated in a massive asteroid strike centuries ago. Josh comes to believe that the 'Black Heart', a computer complex buried in a sector critically damaged in that event, holds the answers to all his questions, and is vital to their future survival.
When the Station's governing Council, of which his own father is a member, announce plans to reconstruct the sector and demolish the Black Heart to make way for badly needed living space, Josh forms a movement and leads a desperate battle to stop the demolition. But can his tiny army thwart the all-powerful Council in time to avert catastrophe?
THE BLACK HEART OF THE STATION is a page-turning fusion of mystery, adventure, and coming-of-age that will keep you absorbed until the final electrifying twist.
