Hope Runners of Gridlock

Simon de la Rouviere

Flora had given up hope. Her father, like the other Hope Runners that had won their championships, had bravely disappeared into the strange anomaly that encased the city of Gridlock, only to never return with the answers to their questions. What happened to their world? What happened to her father?

When the first Hope Runner returns two decades after her father left, events are set into motion that not only gives Flora an unexpected opportunity to pursue the truth in her father’s footsteps, but also threatens to reveal the secrets that keep the delicate power balance and intricate car markets of the city of Gridlock alive.

With Palma, her friend from the Penthouses in the sky, and Esper, her friend from the cars in the Trunks, they adventure through a story of hope, belonging, intrigue, cryptography, and radical markets.
