Childhood's End

(2013)
(Shine)
(The first book in the Shine series)
A Novella by

 
 
In the near future, a few young women manifest extraordinary abilities called "Shine". Each girl's ability is different. Some develop unusual mental abilities. Some become physically powerful. Others have talents that defy description. But the world does not embrace these Shines. It fears them. Aura tried to use her healing powers to help a small child. But when she Shined, something went horribly wrong - and Seattle was destroyed. In the aftermath of this disaster, the government institutionalizes Shines in "rehabilitative treatment centers". Aura is sent to the Transforming Your Light island rehab - but to her it seems more like a prison. The other Shines hate her. The people running the place are out to get her. And she feels certain more is going on here than "group grope" and 12-step sessions. But when she tumbles onto the horrible secret lurking beneath the rehab - she realizes just how great the danger to her and the other Shines really is. Aura resolves to escape before it's too late. But she can only do that if she organizes the Shines, persuades them to work together, and overcomes the deadly opposition she only barely understands.
