Kevin Pierce is a teleporter, a ladies’ man, and a loyal friend . . . or so he thought.
As a genetically altered Luminary, he helps the government bring down some of the most dangerous criminals. Not very challenging if you have his special abilities. But when a group of rebel Luminaries attacks his Organization the fight for survival begins.
One shattering event after another tests the depth of his relationships, his sanity, and his powers. Emotionally torn, Kevin must choose carefully where his loyalty lies. In the middle of all the unexpected chaos he gets the biggest shock of his life when he’s faced by a betrayal he never saw coming. Angry, injured, and ready to even the score, Kevin goes Static . . .
Being strong is one thing. Being an unlimited source of power is quite another.
Genetically altered by the Organization, Annie Fox takes down criminals CIA-style with her luminary strength. With nothing to mend but her broken heart, she is relentlessly pursued by her boss Derek Lake. Just when Annie is about to give him a chance, her ex-husband unexpectedly comes out of hiding.
A wanted man, Nick Logan is a cold-hearted murderer who is considered enemy number one, and orders are clear: kill on contact. He is more powerful than ever and threatens the lives of those she holds most dear. His plan? Get his hands on Annie and use her Kinetic energy to destroy them all. When Annie finds herself with an opportunity to end him, she pauses, horrified by the scars covering the face she once loved. A split second that will cost her everything…
K. Anthony is a writer, a reader and a make-stuff-up-er who lives in New York with her husband and toddler twins. She is a wine connoisseur, which just really means she knows she loves it, and a caffeine addict. When she isn’t busy with her family, she finds herself being transported into the world of imagination. Well, either that or running away from spiders . . . she is convinced they are out to get her!
Later that night I met with Chris and Ryan at a bar for an update. We were nowhere closer to finding Gabby’s dad or the rebels’ location. We agreed I should join them soon for some fun out in the field.
“Wow, did you notice her legs, man?” Chris snapped me out from my thoughts. “That Gabby is hot, the way that little dress fit her the other day.”
“A pain in the ass is what she is,” I said. “But yeah, she’s hot.”
Chris and I smiled and Ryan rolled her eyes. “Of course you two would go for beauty over brains.”
“She doesn’t seem dumb to me,” I said. “Immature when vengeful, maybe, but not dumb.”
“No, I guess not. But it’s typical of you two to drool over any girl who shows some skin.”
“If they don’t grab our attention, Ry, how are we supposed to give them any of our time?” I asked.
“Especially time to find out how smart they might be under their clothes?” Chris laughed and gave me a fist bump.
“So that’s how a girl gets attention? That’s what makes you two care who they are as a person?”
Chris and I nodded. “Pretty much, yeah,” I said, still laughing.
“Jerks,” Ryan said, and narrowed her eyes.
“I think Kevin here will find out just what she has going on in her brain and other parts soon though,” Chris said.
“Me? Nah. She can’t stand me.”
“You said yourself she’s being nice.”
Ryan got up. “I’m heading home. You two stop plotting to sleep with Gabby. She’s under our protection. No messing around.”
“You’re too hung up on rules, Ry. Go out and live a little,” Chris said, smiling. He then turned to me. “And you, just kiss her and shut her up next time she starts bitching.”
I watched Ryan leave, then nodded to Chris. “If she goes without sleeping for a while again and I get desperate, I just might.”
