KIRKUS REVIEW

It’s a race against time when a psychokinetic spook is framed for a crime she didn’t commit.

Teagan is the only psychokinetic in the world—as far as she or anyone else on her black ops team knows. The deal is simple. Teagan carries out top-secret, totally off-the-books missions for a government spook named Tanner, and Tanner keeps Teagan from becoming a lab rat for scientists curious about how her powers work. But when one of the team’s targets turns up murdered in a way that has "special abilities" written all over it, that deal is precariously close to disintegrating and landing Teagan in a government lab and the rest of the team in jail. Now she has 22 hours to clear her name by proving that there is, in fact, a second psychokinetic out there. Meanwhile, Jake, a drifter who’s never known why he has the power to move things with his mind, is on a mission, too: Complete three simple tasks and he gets the information he needs about who he is and where he came from. Teagan is a frank and funny narrator for this wild ride, which starts off with our heroine falling from the 82nd floor of a skyscraper and pretty much never slows down. Readers will be glad to learn that it's set for a sequel.

A fast-paced, high-adrenaline tale that manages to get into some dark themes without losing its sense of fun.
