It began with a preordained encounter-between Henry Darrow, who could foresee the future, and Molly Mahony, a nurse whose healing powers went far beyond her training. Together they proved that certain people were born with remarkable psi abilities that could be used to benefit society. And together they founded the Center, a gathering, living, and training place for their fellow Talents.
The Center's precogs, telepaths, empathsm and telekinetics shared their gifts freelym helping to prevent crimes, to avert tragedies and disasters; too often their efforts were met with suspicion and fear. Recognizing that the Talents would need protection when the excerise of their powers aroused the antagonism of frightened or disbelieving people, Henry and Molly had spearheaded legislation to insure the legal rights of paranormals. Yet legal rights and human rights were not the same, as the Talents who inherited Darrow and Mahony's legacy of ideal's discovered:
Daffyd op Owen, the second leader of the center-a highly gifted telepath who was ready to use every trick at his command to ensure the survival of his people. Amalda, an empath capable of bending thousnds to her will with her projections, yet errified of one man-a man who was determined to gain power of his own...
Tirla, child of the streets, who would challenge both the laws and the law breakers as she sought tto save herself and other children from an enslavement worse than death...
And Rhyssa Owen, Daffyd's gradaughter, who set out to combat those seeking to draft he rpeople for a space station project which would leave them helples victims of the unshielded thoughts and emotions of the unTalented.
