A book review by Clarissa Estrada
Having superpowers would be cool, right?
Not when the government wants to make use of them — hunt them down and catch them all, with intent to find out just how far their powers can go. Until a new group rises up.
A group of teens use their abilities to crush government sites, and spell out ‘danger’ in everyone’s mind.
Suddenly, experimenting with their powers doesn’t seem as important anymore. Now, they need to use them to their advantage. So they give them a choice: work for us, or die.

When Bear is taken from her right after Cassie discovers that she is pregnant, she embarks on a quest to save him from the trolls, a quest that will take her east of the sun and west of the moon, a quest that may ultimately cost her her life — and her baby’s.
