Sixteen-year-old Josh Driscoll lives in the Station, a city constructed one kilometer beneath the surface of a frozen, lifeless earth. Forced to enroll as a novice monk at the Station’s resident monastery as punishment for stealing a space suit and traveling to the surface, Josh is gradually drawn into ancient texts which hint at the city’s origins, now lost in the mists of time.
Josh comes to believe that the Black Heart, a computer complex buried in a sector critically damaged by a massive asteroid strike centuries ago, holds the key to the mystery, and is vital to their future survival.
When the Station’s governing Council, of which his own father is a member, announces plans to reconstruct the sector and demolish the Black Heart, Josh forms a movement and leads a desperate battle to stop the demolition.
But can his tiny army of followers thwart the all-powerful Council in time to avert catastrophe?

Jay Allan Storey has traveled the world, passing through many places in the news today, including Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and the Swat valley in Pakistan. He has worked at an amazing variety of jobs, from cab driver to land surveyor to accordion salesman to software developer.
Jay is the author of four novels, and a number of short stories. A new novel is in the works for 2018. His stories always skirt close to the edge of believability (but hopefully never cross over). He is attracted to characters who are able to break out of their stereotypes and transform themselves.
He loves both reading and writing, both listening to and playing music, and working with animals. He’s crazy for any activity relating to the water, including swimming, surfing, wind-surfing, sailing, snorkeling, and scuba diving.
Jay is married and lives in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
