Within the Kingdom, individual paranormal power is a fact of life. Yet only the royal family can openly display their wondrous talents. Any commoners revealing unusual abilities face arrest and execution, often at the hands of the King's own empowered secret police.
Ever since birth, Anson's mother has drilled him in how to keep his power secret. Living in a distant village, he's managed to keep his head low and abilities to himself, even while other children foolishly reveal themselves to the wrong people.
However, when Anson is called to the capital city for his compulsory military service, he's forced to elude the King's powerful agents on their own turf. He also meets a curious young princess, who's both powerful and sensitive enough in her own right to discover Anson's secret.
Managing to remain one step ahead of the King's empowered operatives, Anson and Lydia make plans to escape the Kingdom entirely. But once the monarch announces Lydia is to marry another royal telepath against her will, the two young rebels must immediately battle for their own future, reshaping their entire society in the process.
