Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: IN THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF AMERICA, even the smallest sign of rebellion is punishable by death. A guarded stone wall encloses the nation and separates it from the rest of the war-torn and lawless countryside. The government uses "ments" - individuals with subtle telepathic abilities - to monitor the population and enforce its tyrannical laws. 17-year-old Michael Cairne discovers he is one of these gifted telepaths, only his ability is much more dangerous. He is the result of a government experiment that turned him into a weapon. His mother gave her life to smuggle him out of captivity when he was a baby. Now, the man who killed her, Harris Kole, is the dictator of the People's Republic and will stop at nothing to get Michael back and finish his twisted experiments.Aided by a former trainer of telepathic soldiers, an assassin who can move faster than the eye can see, and a beautiful girl with a rare empathic gift of her own, Michael will escape into the ruins of Colorado to live with other gifted outcasts. Here, in the former ghost town known as Gulch, he will meet a band of allies - and enemies - that will test everything he has become, and ignite in him a passion so fierce it will bring an entire nation to its knees.

Inhaltsangabe: 17-year-old dishwasher Michael Cairne always thought he was just a normal kid growing up in your average, everyday dictatorship - until he discovers he has the ability to read minds. Inside his oppressive country, about 1 in 100 people are born with a minor form of telepathy, but Michael's ability is much more powerful and can be used as a weapon. This puts him on the run from shady government men intent on dissecting what is inside his brain.
Louis Blake is an aging, ex-military general who knows what Michael is going through. After a tragic event leaves Michael alone in the world, Blake takes him under his wing, smuggling him out of the country to secretly train him in a mountain town in what used to be Colorado. With only a few years left to live, Blake intends to turn Michael into the leader his rebel faction needs. He will do this because of a promise he made long ago to a woman he loved - a woman who gave birth to the most dangerous boy known to mankind.
When Michael meets a beautiful "empath" named Arielle, and her jealous older sister, Charlotte, he will begin a downward spiral with lasting consequences. As his telepathic ability and his love for Arielle grow stronger, so does something else - a need to see the world changed, whether it be to raise it up, or burn it to the ground.

Michael Cairne is the only one of his kind, and he wants revenge against the men who created him. 
A prisoner in a cruel totalitarian state known as The People's Republic of America, Michael's survival depends upon hiding a violent gift he never asked for.
He is an Ascendant. When in a state of emotional upheaval, his mind unleashes an invisible, telepathic force worse than any bomb.
The nation's tyrant leader, Harris Kole, would enslave Michael and create the most dangerous weapon the world has ever seen. A rebel leader with a dark past, Louis Blake, would train Michael to overthrow the same government that made him an orphan.
In a hidden rebel village, Michael will meet Arielle Casmas, a beautiful "empath" who just might be the only cause worth fighting for, unless Michael gives in to his darker ambitions and becomes a tyrant like the man he has sworn to kill.
