In this Sci-Fi novel, it is now the 31st century. Civilization as we know it destroyed themselves in the 21st century, and humankind escaped to the stars. Now, most of the technology from the 21st age, as well as its history, has been lost, and those on other planets are cut off from Earth. However, the Corporation--a kind of "evil" government-esque entity akin to our 21st century Big Business--has rediscovered the ability to space travel, and they are set on utilizing any and all resources on other planets--regardless of if there is a colony of humans already living there. An unlikely group of Ministry characters composed of a medic, a leader, a computer scientist, and a Martian warrior, join the Corporation's journey to Titan. While the Corporation is set on destroying any humans that happen to be there to exploit Titan's resources, the Ministry group strives to keep them alive.

Or will Stark turn on them before the deed is done?

In this novel, branded a sci-fi by the author, but which I think of more as a YA Adventure/Da Vinci Code, two high schoolers--former best friends who sadly grew apart--are tasked with the history project of researching the Secret Chamber of the White-Eyed Star God in the Copan Temple. As they navigate past missing webpages, a trip to Europe, time traveling, the President of the United States, and aliens, Emma and Logan find themselves unraveling the mystery of the stars. What will they find? And will they even survive their discovery?
