Hothouse : It’s getting hot…
…things are about to burn.
A war is starting and Chris must stop the station.
Washington told him all about the station’s plans. They have weapons powerful enough to destroy everyone Chris cares about, cause indescribable suffering and end the world as he knows it.
When Chris comes face to face with the charismatic leader of the station, he has a startling realization…
Neither Washington nor the people from the station are prepared to admit what this battle is really about.
But Chris discovers the truth.
Together with his friends, he is prepared to put an end to it all now, even if the weapons they need are much bigger than he is used to.
Will Chris get burned during their mission to stop the madness once and for all?
Or will he emerge unscathed, ready to face his final demons?
The final, fiery battle will test him to his limits.
“Don’t speak ill of the dead,” hisses Abigail, before turning and leaving me alone on the deck.
“I made a mistake. I didn’t want her to die; I only wanted to stop her. And now I’m trying to make up for it, Abigail,” I say. No one hears me, but the words I say are true. I need to atone for my mistake and it’s why I’ve sided with Washington, fighting for the good of humanity. My brother Rich is with me, and—reluctantly—Abigail, of course.
Delphine and I have a complicated history. As sure as the sun rises each day, as sure as it sets each night—bringing a cascade of color before the dark—I’ll love her.
But Delphine barely sees me anymore. Not after I allowed Apollo to kill Ada, the young woman who fell from the sky. Ada Rothman was Commander Rothman’s daughter, and the person who led us down this terrible path towards death and destruction. I wish every day that I’d never saved her from the pit.
I’m lost in my dark thoughts, alone on the top deck of the sleek, steel-gray boat owned by Yanx, as we barrel up the coast towards Canada. We are on our way to stop the people from the station.
The boat is powered by some kind of fuel and has electricity that operates lights and other incredible devices. The rumble of the engine that propels us at terrific speed through the water causes gentle vibrations I can feel through the smooth wooden deck.”
