Available at Amazon http://amzn.to/wbE8lB
This short story starts with teenage Vallon Drake. She is at a high school for the gifted of power, (the AGS Prep Academy in Seattle) but even there she feels different. She knows she is more powerful than most of them and she feels their powers. Her guardian Landon just wants her to follow the rules but the itch that she gets when she doesn’t use her powers gets her to disobey the rules discretely and go into the woods and use them. While coming back to sneak into the prep academy she finds a girl who looks like her dead. Vallon wants to investigate but both her guardian and the headmaster want her to stay out of the investigation but Vallon feels an obligation to investigate. She feels that they are not investigating closely because it is a crime of the gifted.
This is a very enchanting read. I truly enjoyed getting to know the character of Vallon.A very interesting compelling read.
