The Rothston Institute can secretly manipulate the decisions of anyone in the world – from ordinary friends to government leaders. Possessing special mental skills used to accomplish its goals, college student Kinzie Nicolosi is training to protect humankind from self-destruction. A student missing an exam? A construction worker fired for an industrial accident? A Congressman ruined in scandal? Necessary consequences of honing her skills for the greater good.
But Kinzie brings more than her remarkable talent to Rothston. She bears an unexpected power that rivals Rothston’s own … and the clash may be something none of them can control.
The Kirkus Review calls Foreseen a “nuanced page-turner” and “a worthy sci-fi thriller.”
An “adventurous twist of genre, much recommended,” says the Midwest Book Review.
The Rothston Institute has fallen to those who are after the key to controlling humanity – a secret held deep within Kinzie Nicolosi’s own body. Scared and on the run, Kinzie’s life becomes entangled with a collection of loners, adding the wrath of their own foes to the dangers she faces. Outmanned and outgunned on all sides, none of them can protect Kinzie or the world from the true evil behind the threats – something far more terrifying than anything they have encountered.
And it is waiting…
The saga of Kinzie Nicolosi continues in Choices, the second book in the Rothston series. Author Terri-Lynne Smiles once again convincingly explains world events, particularly unfathomable political ones, through the interference of adepts who are able to control the decisions and actions of others.
With her enemies out of commission, Kinzie Nicolosi wants nothing more than to bury herself in her studies and prepare for a future of protecting humankind through the Rothston Institute. But a new menace rises up, forcing her on a quest for a mysterious stone of old that unified adept efforts across the globe, believed to have been destroyed long ago. Her search is hampered by the ghosts in her head, dogging her every step, and beating them may be the toughest challenge she’ll ever face.
Kinzie’s adventures continue in Origins, Book 3 of the Rothston Series.
Alone and angry, Kinzie wants every common to know about adepts and stop them from destroying lives, even if that means taking on the Rothston Institute, itself. But what price will she have to pay to achieve that goal, how many lives will be lost in the process, and can Kinzie control of any of it?
Book 4 and the conclusion of the Rothston Series.
