In 2045, smart tech is everywhere and the teenage prodigy Dylan Chroz is the best. But being the best means being in demand sometimes by any means necessary.
So what do you do when they steal your girl to make you perform? Do what they want? Or do you outsmart them and do your damnedest to smoke out every one of them so they never can do this again?
That is, if Tessa doesn't beat you to it. More
In the year 2045, smart tech is everywhere, much of it devised by the teenage prodigy Dylan Chroz. But being at the top of the technical world means being in demand. Sometimes, by people who should be looking out for you. Sometimes, by people who won't take no for an answer. It's easy to get lost in the designs and code with absolutely no one to point you to a real life. And so it was until Tessa Miller came into his life.
Tessa alone makes Dylan's life more than schematics and computers. Her indomitable will, her impish challenges, irrepressible humor, and even her untidiness became an oasis of magic in a drab world of order and automation, adding color and breathing life into something that had been less than a life.
So what do you do when someone steals your girl to make you perform your technical wizardry on their sketchy hardware? Do you curl up and cry? Do what they want? Defy them? Or do you outsmart them and do your damnedest to smoke out every one of them so they never can do this again?
It was a mistake, of course, to make an enemy of Dylan. After all, people who threaten Tessa were definitely not going to come out unscathed.
And Maxcom didn't appreciate what those around Dylan will do to help him save Tessa.
But the real mistake they made was thinking Tessa was going to sit quietly by and get used. As if! If you think Dylan's the wrong one to cross, well, you don't know Tessa.
That last mistake was really going to cost them.
