After the death of his renowned parents in a tragic accident, fifteen-year-old billionaire Lucas Lightning-third of his name-escapes to the family's mountaintop estate in the mysterious Thunder Valley, where violent storms routinely clash with the stunning surroundings. There, he spends his days eating exquisite meals prepared by his private chef, lounging poolside by the backyard oasis, and hunting his best friend's monstrous mechanical creations in the wooded area that encircles the property. Isolated from the world, Lucas is at peace. But when Lucas stumbles upon an enigmatic boy during one of his hunts and an escalating storm, his picturesque life turns upside down. Lightning Manor is targeted by a brutal mercenary raid that sees the boy taken and a loved one rushed to the hospital. Trying to make sense of what happened, Lucas ventures into town to find those responsible. There, he will contest with a chief of police who may have had a hand in the attack, a principal whose evil knows no bounds, and a mayor who will stop at nothing to claim the Lightning estate for himself. As the danger builds and questions regarding Thunder Valley begin to pile up, Lucas only grows more resolute in his quest for answers-even if those answers reveal a devastating truth about his family and the origins of their wealth. Irrational, self-destructive, Lucas sheds friends and family in pursuit of a truth he isn't certain he wants to obtain, motivated by reasons no one would understand and he can't explain. He isn't a hero, and he never deludes himself into believing he is always acting in the right. He is a boy trying to prove his worth, trying to cope with the loss of his parents, all the while struggling-buckling-under the weight of a name that has become worldly synonymous with greatness.
