Olivia Brophie and Aristotle’s Lantern
Having lost the Pearl to the evil Cult of Wardenclyffe, Olivia must face life without the most powerful device in the universe. Pursued by the paparazzi in their quest to get the true story of the Bear Girl, she must learn to trust and rely on other people if she is going to rescue her brother Gnat and best friend Doug who are lost in ancient Florida; never mind finding her missing parents or ending the environmental catastrophe she caused.
Hospitalized with mysterious pains, Olivia meets Nigerian-born Abiona, a math-whiz with a deep secret. Together with fun-loving Terrilyne, they decide to release the Bobwhite witch from her frozen tomb in the hopes she can restore everyone?s lives back to normal. What they unleash is beyond anything they could have imagined. Confronted by the true power of the Pearl, Olivia must make a choice that will alter the direction of the earth and her future.
