High-school quarterback Mercury O’Brien is very certain about her place in the world. She’s going to lead her football team to a championship, finish her senior year, and begin the journey to her dream job as a professional football official. But then the team gets a new wide receiver, and Oliver Bledsoe’s presence challenges everything: her reputation as a steady leader, her rules against getting involved with teammates…and maybe even the laws of physics.

Because impossible things start happening, like a wall of light erupting out of the endzone during a football game—an entity that local tech giant XyMass Technologies wants to exploit. Mercury and Oliver share a matching vibrational energy with each other and with the anomaly, putting them on XyMass’s acquisition list.

At first, they refuse to be involved and distracted from their personal goals. But soon they don’t have a choice. As their feelings intensify, so does the crazy chaos surrounding them, dragging their friends into the mayhem and luring hungry predators. Mercury is forced to abandon her single-minded focus, and when her parents go missing, she has to face the truth: she’s intertwined with something not of this world, something that could destroy everything she cares about.
