The Ibis Door
Ancient, lost music and magic. A race of precocious creatures. And an impossible search, launched by improbable friends...
2065: Just as the Mars Colony opens up for trade, a series of volcanoes have come to life on Earth that threaten to tear its crust apart. When his space-trading career goes into a crash dive before he can even graduate from New Mexico’s White Sands Space Academy, Ozzie Reed’s plan to recover it gains him some unlikely friends, along with a problem he didn’t need: Is there really something dangerously wrong with Earth? And what, if anything, does music have to do with that?
After he meets Freya, an Icelandic firefighter-in-training, Norman Garcia, a pizza-slinging robotics nerd from Pasadena, and Alexis Wu, a brilliant British student, Ozzie finds he’s involved in increasingly difficult questions:
Where and what is the music? Why is it linked with ancient secrets, erased from the history of Earth? And finally, what does he owe in this picture — to the people he cares about, and to himself?
The Ibis Door is the first book of the Dreamers series.
