After a wandering youth that took her across North America countless times, she currently lives in the Metro Vancouver area of Canada.   An inveterate traveler, amateur photographer, and a fan of old maps, Karen keeps a loaded backpack to hand because she never knows when she might meet a destination she can't refuse.

Strange story about kids with special gifts. They never really explain what "The Gift" is and the pretense of an "afterburn" sounds strange. It's a quick read but not one to go out of your way to read.

I read it, but was not really innto it for most of the book. I think had the author spent more time in the beginning of the book setting the scene and explaining the special abilities of the characters it may have made the book much better. I do hope Karen L Abrahamson continues to write as her mind is brilliant and she has very innovative ideas and plots.
