Don’t hide from your feelings.
Hide from the killer robot hunting you.
Chase’s grandad has been missing for so long that the old man’s declared dead. But Chase doesn’t believe it. Grandad was too smart. So when the opportunity arises for Chase to work with Grandad’s old research and development team, the boy gets a job as an intern. Only this team isn’t researching, it’s developing futuristic stealth technology. And they expect the intern to fly it.
As Chase learns more and more about Grandad’s disappearance, he grows closer to his team. As he gets better at flying the tech, he catches feelings for the team navigator. The clues to Grandad’s vanishing as well as the livelihood of his team all depend on Chase’s performance in “the game.” The government’s top-secret stealth technology demonstration is also the last place Grandad was seen. It’s a game of hide and seek with robots, clones, telepaths, and a time-traveling ninja.
Now Chase is in over his head. Now the game turns deadly, and Chase can barely survive. Now Chase must decide if learning the truth about his father is worth betraying his team.
