Chasing Power

When business student Samantha Gibson finds herself cornered by a euro-trash Darth Vader wannabe in a dark alley, it's a nightmare end to a terrible week. Of course super powers aren't real--until someone's using theirs to bash your head in. 

It turns out that a one-in-a-million accident has caused her to catch the attention of the Talents, a group of humans with amazing abilities. And a surprising number would rather have her dead than competing with them. Sam's happy to tell anyone who'll listen to her that she doesn't actually have super powers. The problem is getting anyone to listen to her. 

Enter Lane, Al, and Harry, three nerdy (though Lane's kind of a cute type of nerd) best friends and Talents. While their powers may not be glamorous, or even all that super, they're determined to do the right thing. They politely kidnap Samantha and hit the road, racing cross-country towards a group offering protection. To independent Sam, each minute of being a damsel in distress is like an iron-spike in her foot. It's possible that friendship, and love aren't the liability she thought they were, but it's also possible that she may not live to find out. Because with stronger and stranger opposition barring their way, safe haven may be just a pipe dream in a world where everyone is chasing power...
