A Cherokee prophecy, escalating natural disasters and strange sounds, mark the approaching end of planet Terra, our Earth. When Jewel Adams leaves home school for high school in her senior year, she discovers she’s not the only one with special abilities. Jewel, the Fletcher twins and Storm Ryder share a destiny as the only ones who might avert the coming disaster, but will their enhancements be enough to save Terra? Jewel sees auras and through disguises. Sky is a strong empath and her twin brother Pax, the only one who can calm her, is able to smell pheromones and other scent molecules better than a bloodhound. Storm’s telekinesis seems to be the most practical gift, but can he control it during one of his rages? Will an ancient enmity between two star systems cause their mission to fail? Are they willing to take the chance? If they don’t, Terra will self-destruct and mankind will be destroyed.
Patty Perrin, who writes under the pen name P.T.L. Perrin, grew up in Europe as a military brat and speaks several languages. She enjoys the diversity of people and cultures, and has an insatiable curiosity, especially about who we are in the universe and the wonders of our own planet and history. Books were her lifeline growing up without television. She has always loved adventure, sci-fi, and teen/young adult fiction, and she's writing books in those genres that she would have loved to read and that her grandchildren will enjoy. To her surprise, people of all ages are enjoying her books. Patty lives in South FLorida with her Tennis-pro husband, where they exercise bragging rights in the beautiful winters and where they enjoy their large, constantly growing family of misfits.
Technology changes rapidly these days. Nothing I introduce in this story is beyond the realm of possibility. The cell phones we carry everywhere have the computing power of some of the room-sized computers I worked with years ago. We first saw them in Star Trek, long before anyone imagined that most of us would own at least one, taking them and the fact that we don't like to be without them for granted. What does the future hold? Perhaps wristbands that give us telepathic abilities. Why not? Every bit of tech in this series is important to the story. It gets better!
He’d wrapped another of his inventions on my wrist while explaining it won’t come off without a special code. I don’t mind. The stylish wristband looks like a fitness monitor and I can use it as one. A smooth, hard face displays the time and date or, with a touch, can show the number of steps I’ve taken or how many calories I’ve burned. It’s waterproof, weatherproof, and loose enough to wash under it in the shower. It’s also so comfortable I can wear it to sleep. Dad designed this one to open a direct mental link to my parents.
