I loved this short story! Galina is a very compelling character. I was appalled by the treatment center and all the horrors within its walls. Reading this story whet my appetite to read more books in this exciting series!

A great intro to Galina, a young teen who is developing powers. She has been taken by the government, deceived into believing that they want to help her, instead they have other motives behind gathering "special" people. Once she understands that, she has no choice but to try to escape.

A good wee introduction into a much bigger story. Was very interesting and flowed well. Interesting characters that grew as the story went on. Nice set up for the main novel
