Abstract:

Boston, 1868. The Civil War is over but a new war has begun, between the past and the present, tradition and technology. On a former marshy wasteland, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is rising, its mission to harness science for the benefit of all. But a fiery cataclysm throws Boston Harbor into chaos, and a mysterious catastrophe devastates the heart of the city. Is it sabotage by scientific means? The first graduating class at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is thrown into turmoil by bizarre phenomena that cause instruments to inexplicably spin out of control, challenging enterprising students to protect lives while combating Harvard rivals.
