The Quantum String Quartet
The Quantum String Quartet
About the Book
In California, Ember, a determined blind girl tries to control her angry heat that mutilated the man who attempted to molest her.
In New Mexico, Bolton, an ingenious, angry, crippled youth mentally reprograms casino computers to finance his toy robot cars and rockets.
Ember runs away to Las Vegas to escape her overprotective father. She meets Bolton, but they rub each other the wrong way.
When Ember is set upon by unknown attackers, they must fake a marriage and use their powers to escape. When they learn of all they have in common, they become friends, but not lovers because of Ember's fear she cannot control her power when sexually aroused.
Meanwhile, in a small city in Iowa, Gina Red-Bear, a beautiful but alienated half-Sioux, half-Swedish girl, mentally controls the emotions of all the people around her. She dominates her wheel-chair-bound twin brother, George, forcing him to use his own cerebral power to synthesize illegal drugs.
Bolton locates George through an ingenious internet search. He leaves Ember for Iowa, where he encounters Gina. She forces him to fall in love.
Ember, intensely jealous, heads for Iowa and meets George, saving him from his sister. In spite of her feelings, she risks exposing her powers to rescue Gina, first from greedy drug lords and then from her own attempted suicide.
The Quartet decides to try to set aside their differences and band together for mutual protection, though that's easy to say but hard to do. All four return to New Mexico, seeking to find others of their kind.
