When people can craft the energy of the earth into their own power, they can save or ruin lives. At the heart of the Gifted Realm, the Elite Iodex and the Haydenshire family are fighting to protect their people. The Interfeci, however, only seek to sow destruction.
And they might be winning.
Rainer, Emily, Logan, and Adeline strive for respite, but even after flying halfway around the world, the threats of the evil Interfeci follow them. They're tracked through Paris. Only when the Iodex mentor and leader Dan arrives do they learn how exposed they truly are.
Betrayal grips the Gifted Realm. Family turns against family, lies are sold as the truth, and the cost of failure is more than most could bear. The men of Iodex grow more dangerous with each new darkness crushing them. It's only through their girlfriends' healing and empathy powers that anyone stands a chance of coming out of this battle unbroken.
In a quick move, Garrett zipped around Rainer and instructed Chloe to tell Emily to slam on her brakes. He sideswiped the Jag with his SUV. The Jag fishtailed into the emergency lane. The driver emerged screaming loudly and brandishing a pistol, which he pointed at Garrett's Highlander.
Rainer rolled down his window and shot his fierce shield at the driver. He threw him in the air and behind his own car. The gun flew off the overpass.
"Garrett, tell Chloe to tell Em to cast the Hummer," Rainer demanded. Garrett followed his instructions. The Hummer began to glow a brilliant green.
