Overview

Calli Courtnae, age 16, unexpectedly breaks the 100-meter world record at a high school track meet and is whisked off to Montana to train for Olympic tryouts. Upon arriving at the training compound, however, she finds something totally unexpected. Her fellow athletes are secretive, mysterious, paranoid, uncommonly beautiful—and endowed with the same gift of superhuman speed she now exhibits. The truth, Calli learns, is she has been brought to Montana to join an elite clan of Runners who train to undertake highly secret missions for the benefit of superhuman kids everywhere.

When three Runners from her compound are kidnapped by a clan of evil terrorists who can kill with their thoughts, Calli is assigned to the team that must deliver a rare magic diamond to the terrorists in exchange for the hostages. Calli is just beginning to accept her new world when it is turned upside-down by a mysterious woman who secretly gives Calli the real diamond, while the team leader is given a decoy. Almost immediately the magic diamond in Calli’s pocket unleashes within her a startling range of supernatural powers and mind-reading abilities. Using her new-found powers, Calli exposes traitors among her team, discovers the hottest-looking guy on the team believes she is his soul-mate, has visions of her companions’ tragic futures, and learns she alone holds the power to change their futures. While Calli knows her powers derive from the secret diamond in her pocket, her companions do not, and Calli dreads the fast-approaching day when they will discover the truth.

    Different

    A fantasy style read. Not a bad read, and the author brings some imaginative concepts to life. I think this could also be considered a teenage read.

    This book is pleasant.

    I hardly write reviews, but this book is very entertaining and well thought out. I read it in a few hours after getting it earlier in the day. I can't believe it's free, and now i will go look for the others in the series. =)

    Excellent read!!!!

    Usually with free books i am a bit skeptical but this was perhaps the best free book i have found to date.

    The plot was fast paced and the it is a story that has never been done before. Read, read, read!

    Fine, could be better

    This book is probably intended for 11 to 15 year olds maybe. The book is fantasy and has a great storyline. Sometimes, I think the way the thoughts are put down aren' t the best. Overall, it is a wonderful and very addicting book. I can' t wait to read the next book!!

    Quick read

    I really enjoyed this book. Very good for being free and for pages a bit long. The book kept me interested, and one to none dull spots, plus had a bit of romance. It is quite a easy read id say but is nice to have the dictionary handy on the nook for some parts. I would recommed to people who like a bit of romance, but is focused on other things.
