Mind reading. Super strength. Shape shifting. The age of the supers is here, but who said anything about heroes? The rules of the new world order are simple: the super-powered rogues are genetically predisposed to violence and terror, says the Prime Minister. So you have two choices: use terror for the right cause as a black ops agent, or be hunted by the black ops agents.
Silas Knight is a telepath who only cares about survival. Eli is a centuries-old hermit on a crusade to save super-powered children, one he is sure will end in death. And Alice is a fugitive with a power so dark she wonders if the propaganda is right about her. But one works from the shadows to unite them, to bring forth a new world where rogues can not only survive, but live.
If they don’t rip each other apart first.
The world is in a precarious place. Demonstrations, protests, and riots flood the streets, with a resounding message: rogues are people, too.
Grayson agrees. But unlike the uneducated populace, he’s seen things that no living man should have to see. He’s been behind enemy lines, in the midst of the darkest and most depraved oppressive regime in history. And he knows something so dark, so terrible that it pains him to carry that knowledge day after day.
He knows that in order to secure freedom, a good man must die. Even if his friends must die along with him.
It all started with the rebellion. Teens in the streets, throwing bricks through every storefront, slashing every tire, and beating any stranger who looked at them twice. But sometimes the solution is worse than the problem. This is the lesson Zak learns after being ripped from his humble family and thrown into a new school, where open sexuality reigns and chastity is a vice. There, he asks what the cost of discipleship is, and more importantly, is it worth paying?
