Publisher's Summary

After their home burns down, fourteen-year-old Nick, his younger brother, and their father move into a ramshackle Victorian house they've inherited. When Nick opens the door to his attic room, he's hit in the head by a toaster. That's just the beginning of his weird experiences with the old junk stored up there. After getting rid of the odd antiques in a garage sale, Nick befriends some local kids - Mitch, Caitlin, and Vincent - and they discover that all of the objects have extraordinary properties. What's more, Nick figures out that the attic is a strange magnetic vortex, which attracts all sorts of trouble. It's as if the attic itself has an intelligence…and a purpose.

Ultimately Nick learns that the genius Nikola Tesla placed the items-his last inventions-in the attic as part of a larger plan that he mathematically predicted. Nick and his new friends must retrieve everything that was sold at the garage sale and keep it safe. But the task is fraught with peril-in addition to the dangers inherent in Tesla's mysterious and powerful creations, a secret society of physicists, the Accelerati, is determined to stop Nick and alter destiny to achieve its own devious ends. It's a lot for a guy to handle, especially when he'd much rather fly under the radar as the new kid in town.

Fans of intrigue, action, humor, and nonstop surprises are guaranteed a read unlike any other in Tesla's Attic, Book One of the Accelerati Trilogy.

    "Suspend Disbelief"

    This was a fun YA for me. I like YA's quite a bit. The performance was stellar with very good distinctions on different voices. I particularly like Mrs. Plank's voice as she sounded a bit like Roz from Monsters Inc.

    The story itself was entertaining although there were a few MarySue moments for me where characters did things so dumb, I yelled at them while listening to the book. Just actions that no sane teenager would do in today's society.

    But I think I will listen to book two when it comes out. I'd like to see what the kids are up to next.

    "Perfect in every way"

    If you want the perfect book to start on Audible, this is it! Excellent story, amazing narration and flawless performance. I can't wait to listen to the next book in the series because the cliff hanger demands it. I will recommend this to all my scifi students and conspiracy theorists. They will love it!! Thanks Audible!!
