Hi, guys. Need some help with a query. Already gotten some critiques on it, but I'd like your input if you have any to offer. I'm willing to return the favour to those who ask.
Without further ado:
After a psycho kills his brother, a recession threatens his family, and a bully ruins his adolescence, it’s no surprise seventeen-year-old David Morrison thinks that the world is unfair. What does surprise him is the supernatural being who offers him the power to change it.
During one chance encounter outside London, a homeless man gives David a powerful ability: to control people’s minds by shaking their hands. David plans to send his bully to a far-away country, but when he possesses the guy’s parents and accidentally kills them, he realises that this gift is not to be toyed with, and that if he wants to create a world free of injustices, he must focus on the strongest of them. One happens to be Britain’s crooked government. With the ability to make puppets out of anyone, infiltrating and peeling the system open from the inside should be child’s play.
But a supernatural handshake doesn’t make David bulletproof. Not against someone who sends him weird e-mails, claiming to know about his secret power. As David exposes the secrets of Britain’s elites and instigates a middle-class revolution, the stalker throws armed thugs and traps in his direction, disrupting David’s every move. No matter how hard he tries, David can't track this guy down, nor figure out why the hell he's doing it. Not even when the scumbag targets his family.
Caught in a line of fire he can’t see nor find, David learns that even with the power of kings in his hand, creating a perfect world may require more blood than he’s willing to spill.
