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?
