Nothing is as it seems . . . When Adam joined the Pioneer program, he became one of six teens to forfeit their bodies for a new, digital existence. Together, the Six were unstoppable, protecting the world from artificial-intelligence systems that threatened the human race. But they were more than a team—they were family. Until now. Adam has a complex power within his circuitry that defies the very laws of physics. He wasn't programmed to have this power, and he can barely control it or its consequences. Adam's never felt more alone. Amber, the newest Pioneer, knows what it is like to be an outsider. She gets Adam in a way the others don't. Except Amber's software has been corrupted, and until Adam figures out exactly what she's become, the Pioneers—and the world—are in mortal danger.

Author Bio: Mark Alpert

Author Bio: Mark Alpert

Mark Alpert majored in astrophysics at Princeton University, and wrote his undergraduate thesis on the application of Einstein’s theory of relativity to Flatland, a model universe with only two spatial dimensions. His resulting paper was published in the Journal of General Relativity and Gravitation in 1984 and has been cited in more than one hundred physics papers since. After earning an MFA in poetry at Columbia and working as a reporter, he became an editor at Scientific American, where he simplifies bewildering scientific ideas for the magazine’s readers, explaining concepts such as string theory, extra dimensions, and parallel universes. He also contributed articles to Popular Mechanics and wrote copy in the 1990s for CNN’s Moneyline. His short story “My Life with Joanne Christiansen” was published in the 1990s in Playboy. His first novel, Final Theory—the first in a series—is a thriller that incorporates many of the technologies and ideas found in Scientific American. He lives in Manhattan with his wife and children and is a proud member of Scientific American’s softball team, the Big Bangers.
