Galactic, France’s answer to SpaceX, has just launched a communications satellite into orbit, but the payload actually harbours a frightening weapon: a nuclear-triggered electromagnetic pulse [EMP].
When the satellite is in position, Galactus’s second-in-command, Dr Nevada Patel, will have the power to lay waste to the world with the EMP. A former astronaut, Patel believes she is following the directions of the Numen, aliens who saved her life when she spacewalked outside the International Space Station. She is convinced that with the Holy Grail - just discovered by the owner of Galactus, eccentric treasure Hunter Jean-Pierre Broussard - she can be reunited with the Numen, change the world’s destiny, and become immortal with him.
The countdown has begun when Nicholas and Michaela are thrown into the impending disaster. They must stop the EMP that would wreak havoc on communication and electronic systems on Earth, resulting in chaos and anarchy.
