Finding the Lost(2012)
(The third book in the Algae Voices of Azule series)
A novel by Mark Cheverton
Ten-year old Billy and Ali hate their lives in the underground refuge of Haven. Being smaller and weaker than the other kids, they are constantly the targets of teasing and abuse, the bullies in their psychic powers class always picking them for a daily ration of torment, making them doubt their own value. But then they are given a chance to make a difference, use their psychic powers, or Gift as it's called on planet Azule, to help the unfortunate and save the damned from a fate worse than death. Sneaking back into Azule City with the chief of the Gifted, Farzin Arash, Billy and Ali use their psychic powers to penetrate a military facility, narrowly avoiding the heavily armed security forces that guard the place. Using their Gifts, they try to save those that have been discarded from the dictatorship that rules Azule and all the planets in the solar system, trying to save hundreds of hopeless souls, lost and forgotten. The twins will doubt their own strength but try to do that which has never been done before, save hundreds from the Voices, all at the same time, but unaware of the lurking danger that exists, their very sanity hanging in the balance. Will they survive? Will they find those that are lost in a sea of madness, or will they themselves become lost?
