The world sings to me but I shut it out, because my parole forbids me from using my power.
I went to prison because I didn’t want to join the Hero Council, become one of the so-called “good guys” and give up my freedom. I just wanted a place where I could be free, with other Empowered “renegades.” My friends died trying to be free, but I was captured and sentenced to Special Corrections.
I just turned twenty-one and have been paroled. But a gang wants to use my power for crime, threatening my family when I refuse. A secretive government agency gives me a choice—go back to prison for life, or work for them, and infiltrate a dangerous criminal group.
Not only is my freedom at stake, but the lives of my grandmother, my sisters, and thousands of others are on the line.
