x0: An unwilling telepath and cranky Texan finds herself the unlikely hero in a rescue mission in Nigeria when a young Igbo woman who thinks that her psychic abilities are perfectly normal uses her powers to locate this practical lady. The Nigerian doesn’t care that her new ally thinks telepathy is nonsense; her sister has become a strategic pawn in a dangerous game and she needs help. As the two radically different women struggle with each other, they both grow stronger. Only x0 has the knowledge to intervene. But should they?
d4: The most recent book in the collection is d4, the story of a clairvoyant young woman who finds her visions of the future to be a nuisance, until she discovers that she is hardly unique. An entire group of seers has learned how to make massive profits from their knowledge and another group is obsessed with using their talents to understand a dark future they cannot ignore. They both seem a little crazy. Worse yet, each group is becoming convinced that she’s the one thing that they must have in order to fully succeed.
c3: A timid teenager from Texas discovers that she possesses strange powers that will not let her be. As her friends fight real life demons around them, she struggles with abilities she does not understand and can barely control. A stranger offers her an unexpected bargain. He will teach her how to use her powers to save her friends, but it will require trust in ideas she barely believes, and more courage than has ever been expected of her. Plus she will never be normal again. When it becomes clear that the alternative is her friends’ deaths and the unchecked growth of an evil crime lord’s empire, she accepts the challenge to show those guilty of unspeakable crimes just how powerful a young woman can be.
z2: An aging athlete once walked away from a rare ability to warp time, thinking it was only a young man’s trick to play basketball better.

A violent hate group threatens his daughter and many of his best students, while an old friend needs his unique talents to solve an ancient Maya mystery. The problems are more related than one would think, and both can be solved only if he can learn to control his temporal talents before he runs out of time.
y1: A misfit genius who just wants to be himself and who has always had an odd ability to alter his appearance gets a job in the sales department of an unscrupulous pharmaceutical company. It becomes clear that there are those who would kill to protect the mysteries that the company has worked so hard to keep hidden. While on a sales trip to the South Pacific, he aligns himself with a shadowy group known as y1, sailing to remote islands where he will need all of his unique abilities to resist being turned into the next murder victim.
