Book Five of the Lalassu.
What separates the truly persecuted from the posers?
The lalassu have taken over the abandoned mining town of Founder’s Pass and effectively sundered themselves from the rest of society. In return, the rest of the world is becoming even more afraid and reactionary. Assaults and accusations are flying and suspicion reigns supreme.
But it’s not all smooth sailing inside the boundaries of Founder’s Pass, either. Factions are ripping the community apart. Those who have been part of the lalassu secret society for generations are used to living an itinerant life, not being cooped up in one tiny town. They’re not happy and they’re looking for someone to blame. Those who have been recently identified as lalassu are struggling to cope with the twin burdens of isolation and learning to use their abilities. Tensions are high and waiting for any spark to explode.
Annika Hirdwall used to be a casting agent in Los Angeles, finding the right people to be Tall Man # 2 or Woman With Stroller. It might not have been the most exciting career but it certainly beat being held in a sub-Arctic evaluation camp under the control of a psychopathic researcher. She’d much rather go back to sorting through headshots than training to be a superhero.
Vincent Harris has always been allergic to responsibility. He’d much rather see himself as the wise-cracking sidekick than the hero in the spotlight. But more and more, he’s becoming the one that the people in Founder’s Pass turn to when they have something to complain about. And they have a lot to complain about, taking up time that he could be using to find out more about one intriguing new addition with dark eyes and a damaged soul.
