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.Paula Weston, author of the much-admired Rephaim series, returns with a standalone work- a near futuristic thriller that is utterly and undeniably thrilling. Great writing, heart-burning characters, probing questions about where technology is taking us – and a plot that zips and zings like an electrical current itself. This is a great young-adult writer at the peak of her powers.
