The Quantum State
THE COLD WAR CAME QUICKLY AFTER COVID-19. AND NUCLEAR WEAPONS WERE NOT THE BIGGEST THREAT.
The age of COVID-19 has finally concluded, and the United States is left in a bitter Cold War with China due to suspicions of the origins of the virus. A 16-year-old mastermind and prodigy named Alan Barnes seems completely unrelated to the war as he begins his education at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. That is, until he is recruited by the most covert and dangerous agency in the United States—the United States Quantum Defense Agency. This top-secret, government-funded organization develops quantum weapons for the US Military, which utilize the newfound discovery of the applicable uses of quantum energy. But this new discovery is exceedingly more dangerous than nuclear weapons. As Alan becomes ever more intertwined within the agency, he begins to find out that the people he thought he could trust may not really be as they seem.
