Overview

Exploring the untold potential of the human mind, this thrilling story sends one gifted and determined boy to take down a corrupted and powerful government with one major weapon: his mind.

When terrorism prompts the United States to go to war, strengthen domestic and international security, and even restrict the rights and liberties of citizens, order and stability seem to be within the government’s grasp. However, when an eighteen-year-old boy discovers the false flag operation that’s responsible for killing three hundred innocent people, his father included, the government is faced with an impossible new threat to defend against. A threat that involves a gifted teenager focusing on stopping a targeted heart…and succeeding.

Chance Collins’s main worry this summer was spending it alone while waiting on his first semester of college. But when he’s introduced into an elite secret society of psychic practitioners known as the Psi Philosophers, he’s shown a new world of shocking truths about humans and their true potential. With this eye-opening knowledge, he decides to put his life, relationships, and future on hold in order to train his abilities and give these powerful criminals the ultimatum: confess your crimes or be killed.

    This book was actually really good and you would never know that

    This book was actually really good and you would never know that he is a first time author. The story was very consistent and very interesting. Its a short read therefore you can read it in a day and that's what you are going to want to do anyways. I did not want to put this book down. I really enjoyed this book and cannot wait until the next one comes out. I'm glad there is finally a YA novel that doesn't involve vampires, werewolves or witches and is still an awesome sci-fi book.
