Stolen Futures Unity, Volume 1: QUEEN OF CHAOS
"The Wizard of Oz meets Star Wars...Why don't we have more YA space operas like this? Cat Lyons gives us characters who leap off the page and a plot that keeps readers guessing. A story for all ages and genders, this one is sure to please." Hugh Howey, New York Times bestselling author of Wool
16 year old Annie McCoy always looks out for her autistic 12 year old little brother, Nate. It's what any ordinary big sister would do--and, unlike her extraordinary brother and parents, Annie is average with a capital normal.
Then comes the morning when Nate runs out into the street right into the path of a school bus and Annie chases after him. Time freezes for a moment as the possibilities spin out before Annie. As if she can control the future. Making her choice, she steps into the bus's path and sacrifices herself to save Nate.
Imagine her surprise when she wakes in a world a lot like her own, but definitely not. She's nowhere near Scotia, PA, instead she's in a Las Vegas where the fashion is hopelessly retro and the tech is absolutely futuristic. A boy named N-8 who looks exactly like Nate tells her he summoned her here to Unity on the orders of the Delphi quantum computer that runs this world.
According to N-8, she's here to save the world before Time itself collapses. All she needs to do is steal the Delphi Key and take control of the quantcomp.
Annie refuses to believe that anyone as average as she is could be a Chosen One. Instead, she focuses on saving N-8 and the other autistic children who have been enslaved by the leader of this strange new world: Comptroller Franco Albanese who wields the Delphi Key.
Determined to once again save her little brother--or his incarnation in this strange alternative universe--Annie must find the courage to break out of her ordinary life and embrace her new one before it's too late.
