A short suspenseful story I highly recommend to all horror and thriller readers. […] I was gripping my kindle, terrified for Mary, and then the ending … Well, I can’t give it away, but it was a twist I hadn’t seen coming one bit.
Controlling starships with her mind is all Emily ever dreamed of. Her graduation from the Telekinesis Traffic Control Academy is assured, unless Dylan, an irritating and cocky fellow student, ruins it for her.
The utmost concentration is essential to land a ship from orbit. When Dylan’s jealousy turns to sabotage, thousands of people will die if Emily can’t keep him out of her head. But which of them has the stronger mind?
