If Aiden Manchester had to have a superpower, why couldn't it be something useful like predicting the future? Or Jedi mind tricks? Instead, he's afflicted with manifestations - balls of goo which materialize in midair while he sleeps.
But then, Aidan learns he was a "Quiver Kid", one of seven orphaned babies drafted for an illicit experiment at Tau Nine-One. Setting out to find the experimenters and his fellow victims, Aiden's quest turns lethal when he's kidnapped by a maniacal Quiver Kid with a dark agenda.
As he uncovers dangerous truths about his past, Aiden's very essence is called into question. Will a hellish confrontation at Tau Nine-One reveal the ultimate purpose of the Quiver Kids?
