Ben Patton is a genuis, a mathematician and a man on the verge of a scientific discovery that could change the world—if the math he's invented for it works. Ben's secret to his success: A muse, Hestia, who helps him, cares for him and in many ways is the love of his life, as muses so often are for those they inspire.
Hestia is Ben's secret—but Hestia has secrets of her own. As the two of them race toward the completion of their work, Ben discovers the price of having a muse, and learns that the world can change, in ways he does not expect.
A tale of science and fantasy, from New York Times best-selling author John Scalzi.
