Summary
Eighteen-year-old Julianne De Marchi is different. As in: she has an electrical undercurrent beneath her skin that stings and surges like a live wire. She can use it?to spark a fire, maybe even end a life?but she doesn?t understand what it is. And she can barely control it, especially when she?s anxious. Ryan Walsh was on track for a stellar football career when his knee blew out. Now he?s a soldier?part of an experimental privatised military unit that has identified Jules De Marchi as a threat. Is it because of the weird undercurrent she?s tried so hard to hide? Or because of her mother Angie?s history as an activist against bio-engineering and big business? It?s no coincidence that Ryan and Jules are in the same place at the same time?he?s under orders to follow her, after all. But then an explosive attack on a city building by an unknown enemy throws them together in the most violent and unexpected way. (Publisher's website)
