A Cherokee prophecy, escalating natural disasters and strange sounds, mark the approaching end of planet Terra, our Earth. When Jewel Adams leaves home school for high school in her senior year, she discovers she’s not the only one with special abilities. Jewel, the Fletcher twins and Storm Ryder share a destiny as the only ones who might avert the coming disaster, but will their enhancements be enough to save Terra? Jewel sees auras and through disguises. Sky is a strong empath and her twin brother Pax, the only one who can calm her, is able to smell pheromones and other scent molecules better than a bloodhound. Storm’s telekinesis seems to be the most practical gift, but can he control it during one of his rages? Will an ancient enmity between two star systems cause their mission to fail? Are they willing to take the chance? If they don’t, Terra will self-destruct and mankind will be destroyed.
I was reaching for a mug in the cupboard, when I overheard Wolf talking to my father in the basement office. The secret stairs leading to the office are hidden behind a wall in the pantry, but they apparently forgot to close it, as well as the office door, because some of what they were saying could be heard very clearly.
I heard Wolf say, “The watchers told Sequoia it’s nearly time. Things have been escalating these last eighteen years. Will Jewel be ready?”
“How? How do we get her ready for this? We have no idea what she and the others are supposed to do,” Dad answered.
Wolf must have walked to the other end of the office because his voice faded and all I heard was “... the fate of the world rests on them...”
That was when I no longer felt the mug; only remembering it as it shattered on the tile floor.READ MORE
I clean up the broken shards as quickly as I can, turn the burner off, and head to my room without the tea. One question reverberates in my brain and promises to keep me awake all night. What do I need to be ready for?
I crawl into bed and fight the sheet and blanket in my effort to get comfortable. Sleep eludes me. What are the watchers Wolf mentioned? And who are the others? What are we supposed to do? I wish I hadn’t gone to the kitchen. I wish I hadn’t heard any of it.COLLAPSE

WOW! Patty is a good friend, but I had no idea she was a fantastic writer! She is able to combine a believable story using New Age ideas, the Bible and UFOs. This is an awesome story for adults and teens who will get a kick out of how important the characters are into saving our planet and another by using their unusual abilities. It's a book that's hard to put down and I can hardly wait for the next book to come out so I can continue the journey!
Great entertaining reading. PTL Perrin explores some interesting ideas on the question of "what if we weren't alone". Did God create more than one planet with intelligent life? Are they interacting with us on some level? Anything is possible in the realm of the imagination, and sometimes what is in the imagination can turn out to be true. William Arthur Ward said: "If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it." I wonder how long until some one invents a bracelet that will enable us to communicate telepathically, or finds a way to harness the energy of the electromagnetic fields surrounding the earth? Lots of action, a good quick start, and leaves you hungry for the next book in the series!
