A world changed forever by war. Kids exploited for their gifts of mind and strength. Can the gifted keep the ones they love safe? Or is there more at stake than they know? In 2050 the Cataclysmic Wars erupted, triggering natural disasters--tornados, tsunamis, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions. The country once known as England was changed forever. Some survivors developed physical and mental gifts in the century since. The king uses gifted children for entertainment, and some die from the strain. For 17-year-old Kelwin, his gift of second sight is a curse. Physical contact is painful, and he keeps his family at a distance. Sixteen-year-old Alyssa doesn´t know it, but she has the gift of telekinesis. Her father died, and she and her brother have a new guardian. He senses her gift and wants to control her. Afraid, they run to Kelwin´s family home. Kelwin is drawn to Alyssa and feels no pain when he touches her. Alyssa senses a connection to him, too. And her gift she denies. As they grow closer, so does danger. Can she and Kelwin work together to keep their families safe? Or is there a bigger threat? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rebecca Roberts.
