Quantum Ignition: Earth and Moon by Bob Cox
Orphan girl, abandoned at birth. A math prodigy burning to learn it all. Devastating wars in Asia. Climate doom loop closing in.
Lilliana creates a new physics, determined to save the Earth. But … “new physics” means “new weapons” to some, and means bankruptcy to others. Not everyone wants the Earth to be saved, not if they can’t gain from it. Lilliana has to gather allies and learn skills beyond the math and physics she loves. Will she have to abandon the Earth and create a new world in order to save humanity from its road to hell?
