A gripping science-fiction adventure pits a group of kids with super powers against a mysterious Russian billionaire. Infected by an extraordinary virus from a meteor storm, Sarah, Robert and the younger children in their charge are now at risk from those who want to exploit their super skills. All set to escape from Australia to a new life far away from danger is halted when Nikolai Makarov suddenly enters their world. His plan is deadly. Can the children stop him? Danger and daring are closely interwoven in this thrilling story.
Granted superpowers by the mysterious Fall virus that has put so many in an irreversible coma and chased by the rogue international agency HIDRA, mind-controller Sarah and her band of super-powers kids are in hiding. And they're not the only ones. Given the power of invisibility by the virus, Alex has committed one bank robbery too many - now the police are on his trail. And somewhere out in the desert an old enemy is biding his time. But from the distant wilds of Russia comes an unexpected offer to help. A mysterious stranger claims to know the truth about the virus. But the truth can be a very dangerous thing. Sequel to Meteorite Strike.
