Product Description

Product Description

"Do you want to help me save the world?"

"I see futures, plural. Most are horrible, but one is less so. You can call me The Guide. Take my hand, and I'll show you."

TOM "The Guide" WEAVER can see the future--or rather, the many possible futures--of anyone he shakes hands with. When he shakes the hand of CHRIS MATAN, he sees a desolate and devastated world where Chris lurks in shadows, desperately trying to avoid extermination. Chris is a SPECIAL, a human being who is born with a single super-human trait, and war is about to be launched on the SPECIALS. Every one of them will be eliminated unless Chris can discover his own special ability and join with others of his kind to generate the synergistic power needed to defeat the evil DESTROYER, whose actions now threaten to annihilate not just the Specials but all of humanity.

NOTE: Contains mild language and violence (probably a lot less than what you'd find in a PG-13 movie.) Appropriate for Young Adult Readers

With short chapters and a fast pace this story promises to keep young adult readers and adults turning the page.

This is the full first season, all 5 episodes of The Specials.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Characters with Extraordinary Powers in this Thrilling Science Fiction Novel 23 Nov 2013
By E. Lucas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
“The Specials” is a science fiction adventure novel filled with suspense, danger, and memorable characters. We are introduced to three of the most important right at the start—Chris, who miraculously survives an IED explosion in Afghanistan; Stephanie, who miraculously survives being shot in the chest; and Michael, who has spent three years in a straightjacket learning to calm himself and control his mighty powers. In fact, all three of these young people have powers, and these powers can both destroy and protect, depending on how they are channeled. The small group is mentored by Whitney and alternatively mentored/antagonized by Tom, The Guide.

Though they are just one of many among the Specials—who all have powers—they will be instrumental in the fight against the Destroyer, whose goal is to destroy the world. The book weaves back and forth in time, giving us the characters’ backstories and that of George, who is propelled forward in time against his wishes and to me was the most interesting character. In the present time, it chronicles the Specials’ flight from danger and fight against Kaiden and, occasionally, their own natures.

“The Specials” is a page-turner, with punchy chapters and frequent action propelling the plot along. Its characters have complex personalities, rounded out with both good and bad traits, and the stakes are high. It benefits from being set in our world, making the events more fantastic and exciting—though violence and the decimation of entire towns maybe upsetting to younger readers, it is entirely appropriate for teens up to adults. Recommended to fans of science fiction, especially that focusing on ordinary young people with extraordinary powers (a la X-Men). This is the first in a series, and its fast-paced plot and interesting characters should garner dedicated readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars X-men beware, there's a new group of heroes who are looking to steal your thunder! 22 Feb 2014
By Bewyn Petersen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
BC Chrestians has done what very few have managed to do before -create a band of heroes that will capture our imagination with their feats and their determination to do what's right. Faced with insurmountable odds, these specials fight for good, knowing that they have each other's backs covered. A special team! with a special mission. This book was un-put-downable, and I couldn't what to see what lay over the horizon. Suspense like you can't believe, and the unexpected followed by the even more unexpected will keep this book glued to your eyes. An absolute rush for the senses as your imagination is taken on a roller coaster of action and suspense, a ride filled with absolute dread and soaring relief. Your only disappointment will be the wait for the next installment!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique story and great writing 9 July 2013
By Lucidity - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Amazing book that had me hooked within the first chapter. The story is great and it keeps up a smooth and entertaining pace that makes for an overall very pleasurable read from start to finish. The biggest thing that stood out to me about this book was how unique the environment and characters were, even by the science fiction genre's standards (which are usually always different than the norm). There really isn't anything I can complain about with this book, the excellent writing compliments the creative story very well and the dialogue between the characters really gives them solid and detailed characteristics. It seems that the book is aimed at young adults but personally I think any ages can appreciate this book because it combines a lot of elements that a wide variety of age groups could relate to and enjoy. I will definitely be looking out for future releases by the author and I could see myself reading this for a second time in the near future

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooks from the beginning. 28 Sep 2013
By Book lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A topical book that hooks the reader from the beginning.

The cover is eye catching and professional appearing; it is written and edited and suited to varied age groups and as such, would be suited for gift giving.

The promotion seems to aim this book toward young adults; my husband in his early seventies would enjoy it. Great work by author BC Chrestians.
