Available in: Paperback, e-Book
From the author of Healer comes Connection, a tale of supernatural suspense in which one man's search for redemption pits him against a cunning religious leader and his community who are preparing for a violent end of the world.
Retired Army Captain Jackson Howe views his ability to "connect" with others as invasive and inconvenient, but he deals with it by only using his power to help others. He's found purpose at Havenhart Academy using art therapy with child victims of trauma and his friends have embraced him and his quirky behavior, but after meeting Delaney's friend Cassidy---and developing a stronger than usual "connection" with her---he fears he's destined to forever be on the outside looking in.
But when Cassidy's link to Havenhart makes her a target and the plane she's flying is hijacked, she's forced to crashland in the Florida Everglades and becomes a pawn in the struggle between good and evil. Jackson will call on his training---and special skills---to save her from an enemy determined to spread evil and hurt those Jackson holds dear.
Follow the continuing saga of Havenhart Academy in Book Two of the Gifted Series.
