"The brilliants changed everything. Since 1980, 1% of the world has been born with gifts we'd only dreamed of. The ability to sense a person's most intimate secrets, or predict the stock market, or move virtually unseen. For thirty years the world has struggled with a growing divide between the exceptional...and the rest of us. Now a terrorist network led by brilliants has crippled three cities. Supermarket shelves stand empty. 911 calls go unanswered. Fanatics are burning people alive. Nick Cooper has always fought to make the world better for his children. As both a brilliant and an advisor to the president of the United States, he's against everything the terrorists represent. But as America slides toward a devastating civil war, Cooper is forced to play a game he dares not lose--because his opponents have their own vision of a better world. And to reach it, they're willing to burn this one down"--Amazon.com.

The first one was the best of all 3 books. This one was a good fast read. Very suspenseful and fun read. Kind of predictable though. Great for a fast summer read. Enjoyed it.

terrific sequel. shannon finally chooses Nick's side over John Smith's when Smith admits to her that his whole plan was world dominance. Bur too late to stop events. War between normals and brilliants has finally started. But maybe there's a gamechanger in the next book - if anyone could be turned into a brilliant would that stop the war?
