Read It & Reap #118

4.56 of 5 stars4.56 Goodreads Rating
"An adventurous twist of genre, much recommended." ~The Midwest Book Review.

What if you could change the thoughts of others?

Untraceable control.

The Rothston Institute can manipulate the choices of anyone in the world: you, senators, anyone. Fortunately, it has the self-discipline to use this power to keep humankind safe. Stopping wars, averting crises, advancing peace.

Unfettered power.

To accomplish these feats, their operatives must train, and college student Kinzie Nicolosi has just become one of them. A student missing an exam? A construction worker fired for an industrial accident? A Congressman ruined in scandal? Necessary consequences of honing their skills for the greater good.

Unintended victims.

But Kinzie brings more than her remarkable skills to Rothston. She bears an unexpected power that rivals Rothston’s own. And when she stumbles onto the real intentions of Rothston’s leaders, the clash may be something none of them can control.

First time author Smiles has devised a convincing supernatural culture...By continually paying such close attention to detail, Smiles has proven that she’s skilled at crafting a nuanced page turner...A worthy sci-fi thriller à la Dean Koontz. ~The Kirkus Review
