Seventeen year-old Emma Potter’s life is thrust into chaos the moment she flips a truck over her parent’s car, saving them from a fatal accident. Now she’s forced to live in a new town and face a new realty. Where people can move things with their minds, control fire, teleport, manipulate the elements and make people see what they want them to.
Just when Emma’s starting to get her telekinesis under control, the real secrets around her life are revealed. The moment her powers were triggered, a war began, and whichever side she chooses will win. As the gravity of the situation threatens to consume her, she gets help from Max, who has an uncanny ability to always be there when she needs him. This relationship is essential as Emma struggles with the burden of carrying the fate of a race on her shoulders, which she knows nothing about. She can’t choose a side when even she doesn’t know where she stands. And the longer she remains in the middle, the more desperate the two sides become in trying to force her hand.
With the impending war on the horizon, Emma must hurry to master her powers and find strength within herself she didn’t know existed. Because how can she defend herself with a power she just acquired, against people who have been training for this confrontation their entire lives.
First 150 Words:
There’s a pivotal moment in everyone’s life. A moment you can look back upon and say that is what changed everything. For me, that moment occurred today.
The day started off innocently enough. It was the second of January and the end of my Christmas vacation. My parents and I were visiting my Aunt Teri in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. We’d been there for the whole break and were returning home to Milwaukee.
This morning I got up and got ready. I didn’t feel any different, nothing to warn me of what was to come. I threw on my favorite worn jeans and comfy red sweater and went to have breakfast with my parents and Aunt Teri.
My feet dragged as I went downstairs, wishing I could put off leaving. I really enjoyed my visits with her. She’s my favorite aunt. Actually, she’s my only aunt, but even if she wasn’t she’d still be my favorite.
