Sophie McKenzie’s sure touch is brilliantly on display in this thrilling new adventure about her four teenagers transformed by the Medusa gene. This time the four, all of whom have special mind powers, are in serious danger; their mentor has betrayed them and they are on the run. But, trying to keep one step ahead of the one person in the world who knows all about you is no easy feat. Can the four stay safe or is their cover blown just when it seems there are more Medusa teenagers in other parts of the world ?
