When Tiffany Clarke got out of the Army, the trauma of having had to kill innocent people drove her into a convent, to make amends. Not long after that, she found herself dealing with a boy who could see and do things that were impossible. Then he did something that she knew would make the government terrified of him. He would be confined and turned into a weapon - or killed. He didn't want to hurt anyone, but she knew they'd never leave him alone. So she took him on the run. They journeyed for a year, while she got him ready. He couldn't avoid his hunters forever. But maybe he could learn how to make them let him use his abilities his way, instead of theirs.
