A Fire to Resist

Book # 1 in The Powered series

Word Count: 98K

Genre: YA Science Fiction

In the laboratory, every experimental test subject is expendable—but once Avery’s powers arise she’s determined to be more than another forgotten number.

All Avery—or Test Subject 215—wants is freedom, but to survive means to obey and she can’t seem to submit. With only a hazy memory of life, Avery’s surprised when her powers surface during an experiment—and immediately disappear after her daily medications. She takes advantage when the suppression medications stop, learning to harness her powers. She knows the key to answers is in the cold and cunning Dr. Baring–if she can sneak around without getting caught by her tracking device or guards.

When another rebellious test subject, Rae, attempts to escape and fails, Avery gains a fiery cellmate and confidant with the same goal. The mysterious Rae ignites her determination to fight back, but Avery questions her truthfulness and motives. Avery’s ability to heal herself and alter the five senses around her grows stronger, heightening her gift to avoid guards and manipulate her environment.

The girls break into Dr. Baring’s office  for answers and discover Avery’s file only dates back nine days, not the many years of her murky memory. Before they can learn more, an experiment is scheduled that pits subject against subject–making Rae her rival. Now, Avery must choose: trust her cellmate or attempt escaping alone. But failing means facing a fate worse than death—life as a subject.
