As his families unspoken past catches up with Nicholas Hartwell, he sets about unravelling the history betwixt his mother and uncle, Professor Michael Henniker, who disappeared under mysterious circumstances years earlier.
After discovering several lost artefacts, Nicholas inadvertently succumbs to the same trap that consumed his uncle and finds himself on the world of Ipri-Axis where he is made aware of a monument simply referred to as the 'Temple'.
Rendered inaccessible for eons, all knowledge of its origin has been long forgotten... One myth, however, dominates and defines all Iprian culture, one that says that the Temple is home to an Oracle that has the power to communicate directly with God.
This legend has been exploited by Ipri's Guardian Priesthood who know that whomsoever control's access to the Oracle, control's the planet.
In Einstein's Dice, the start of the Ipri-Axis quadrilogy, Nicholas learns he holds the solution to reopening the Temple. As work begins to decipher the relics, scant regard is paid to what the Temple might really contain...everyone failing to ask the most salient question of all - Why would the builders want to bury the keys on Earth?
Unbeknownst to all, a physics experiment being conducted in deep space is sabotaged with cataclysmic results, and, as the universe begins to destroy itself, all evidence suggests the culprit can be found within the enigmatic structure.
Whilst everyone is desperate to affect an entry to the structure, nobody has considered that perhaps whatever dwells within it, actually trying to get out.
