Torn from their family and slammed into prison, a sister and brother try everything
to save the world they love from a dangerous new regime.
The world is changing the government has seized control of every aspect of society, and now kids are disappearing. For fifteen-year-old Wisty and her older brother Whit, life turns upside-down when they are hauled out of bed one night, separated from their parents, and thrown into a secret compound for no reason they can comprehend. The new government is clearly trying to suppress life, liberty ... and the pursuit of being a normal teenager.
Imprisoned together and condemned to death, Wisty and Whit begin exhibiting strange abilities and powers they never dreamed of. Maybe there is
a reason they were singled out. Can this newly discovered witch and a wizard master their skills in time to save themselves, their parents and maybe the world?Author ProfileJAMES PATTERSON
