      Vannemar Morgan's dream is to link Earth to the stars with the greatest engineering feat of all time-a 24,000-mile-high space elevator. But first he must solve a million technical, political, and economic problems...while allaying the wrath of God. For the only possible site on the planet for Morgan's Orbital Tower is the monastery atop the Sacred Mountain of Sri Kanda. And for 2,000 years, the monks have protected Sri Kanda from all mortal quests for glory. Kings and princes who have sought to conquer the Sacred Mountain have all died. Now Vannemar Morgan may be next....
