Updated, Revision #9
Fifteen-year-old Dax Carter has a lot to cope with: homework, bullies, and a secret crush, not to mention wielding psychic powers. Everyone has the psychic gift, but the spectrum of power leaves some people overflowing and others wanting more. Dax is of the latter, so he has to fight with all his might when a monster breaks into his home.
A rogue scientist wasn’t happy with his power either, so his illegal experiments turn humans into savage monsters. His first subjects were volunteers but now his operating table is built with tough leather straps. One night, a monster smashes through Dax’s front door, and Dax is knocked unconscious while his mom is left in a deathly coma.
If that wasn’t nerve-racking enough, Dax has to sit with an eager detective while hiding a big secret. Dax tells them the attacker was a “monster,” so he can be the one who deals with the real culprit – his best friend, who’s lost his humanity, now with pale skin and empty eyes.
Dax is torn between revenge and the lingering hope to save his friend. And the two friends clash as the monsters grow out of control. To save his town and (maybe) his best friend, Dax must learn to use the little power he has before he ends up as the next victim on the wrong side of good versus monster.
