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.

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.
In a world where thoughts can't be hidden, no one is safe.
MICHAEL CAIRNE NEVER ASKED TO BE BORN, especially not with a dangerous psychic ability that would manifest during puberty and turn him into a freak. He is a "Type I" telepath in a society where 1% of the population has minor psychic gifts. Feared and despised by all, these unlucky souls are enslaved by a government that uses them to oppress its own people.
But Michael learns he is different, the only one of his kind...and dangerous...
Capable of dominating the minds of others for short periods, Michael's power is both a gift and a curse. He is prone to "episodes" in which he blacks out and his telepathy becomes a terrifying force. He keeps it a secret and tells himself he is lucky; born in a military research facility, he would have grown up in a cage had his mother not sacrificed her life to smuggle him out.
Hiding is no longer an option.
At seventeen years old, finding himself on the run from the men who created him, Michael doesn't know who to trust. The government wants to dissect him; a rag-tag group of rebels wants to train him; a beautiful girl named Arielle wants to save him. But all Michael wants is revenge against the man who killed his mother - the same man who rules the nation and has just unleashed a brilliant telepathic assassin to hunt Michael down by exploiting his greatest weakness: his love for a girl who will make him stronger in ways he never imagined.
