Powerless: The Synthesis - Jason Letts

Mira Ipswich lived in an isolated world of her parents creation. Trying to protect their daughter from an unspeakable evil, Kevin and Jeana Ipswich have protected their daughter the only way they knew how. A series of events convinces them that they must release her to the world and her fate. When Mira discovers there is a wall beyond the mist she is confused and excited. Then she finds out why her parents have tried to protect her. Everyone is born with a power or gift. That is everyone except Mira. She must enter this world with only the things she has been taught, the use of all of her thinking skills and survive to fight a war that by the end of the book becomes a personal battle for her.

This was an absolutely awesome book!!! I read it straight through. It is the first in a series. I don't know how many will be in the series but I look forward to reading the next and the next....

Jason Letts has done an excellent job of throwing a group of teens together and showing the way they behave no different than teens today. He has shown their strengths and weaknesses and shown how the right leader can bring them together for the good of all. I will definitely recommend this book to everyone I meet.
