Holy emotional roller coaster, Batman! Tash McAdam, a debut author with this novella, has built an incredibly complex -- and frightening -- world here, and people'd it with some amazing characters. Our main character, Serena, is going through the steps of becoming a certified operative in the organization rebelling against the government, and she's got a good reason for wanting to fight.

She, and those like her, are Psionics -- people gifted with mental powers that make them both valuable and dangerous.

As we follow Serena through her qualification and first mission, we get glimpse after glimpse into the world, its pieces, and the powers that rule it. Tash has done a superb job of developing the world in a short span of time. And the characters. Oh man, the characters! I fell in love with them, and they broke my heart.

A terrific first stab. I can't wait to read the rest of the series!
