What if your mind became your worst enemy?

Struggling with evolving psychic abilities, seventeen-year-old Anna Morgan and her equally exceptional friends are on the run from the ruthless Graham Cregg, leader of a covert operation known as the Delphi Project. Cregg has already killed repeatedly to test Anna’s ability. Now, he and his father, a presidential contender, will stop at nothing to recapture the Delphi adepts, whom they see as weapons to be controlled—or destroyed.

Navigating an increasingly hostile landscape, Anna and her friends form a resistance to rescue those still in the Creggs’ fatal grip. As more gifted kids vanish and public awareness of the Delphi Project grows, so does the opinion that getting rid of the adepts may be a necessary evil.

Yet even as they face off against cold-blooded killers, government operatives, and a public intensely afraid of their psychic powers, the greatest threat to Anna and the resistance may come from within themselves—and their own mysterious abilities could spell their ultimate downfall.

  8. Hi, Maria! I am thinking of you especially as I keep my eye on the news. I hope you are safe and well.

    1. Hi, Wendy!

      Awww.....you're SO SWEET! Thank God, we didn't get Cat 5 winds here in Miami, which was my biggest fear. So it wasn't that bad here. The west coast of Florida, though, did get more damage. The storm made landfall in the Keys. Ouch!!

      Yeah, "intense" is a good word to use to describe this book! And I agree, it certainly IS that! I love the paranormal angle, too!

      You're very welcome for the sharing! Thank you so much for the lovely, thoughtful comment!! HUGS TO YOU AND MOUSE!!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)

  9. I am so late here, I'm sorry!!

    Both books look amazing. I love the sound of Anna, and haha I'm 17 too, so that's cool! The cover of the first book, especially, is also stunning - I adore the purple!
    Great choice Maria! <3 <3 :) :) HUGS!

    1. Hi, Amy!

      Don't feel bad. Sometimes I get behind on replying to comments left on my blog, as well as commenting back. Last week was a bad one for me, as we were expecting Hurricane Irma here in Miami, and I was WORRIED SICK. I could not focus on blogging AT ALL. Now I'm doing some very much needed catching up!

      Oh, you're 17? I ENVY you!! Haha!! How I wish I were that age again, although without all the angst! Lol.

      Yeah, I love the cover of the first book, too! Although blue is my favorite color, I do love purple, as well.

      I know I'm going to enjoy this series! Glad you like it, too!

      Thanks for the lovely comment!! HUGS RIGHT BACK AT YA!!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)
