Born to Darkness

Suzanne Brockmann. Ballantine, $26 (528p) ISBN 978-0-345-52127-9
Bestseller Brockmann (Breaking the Rules) takes readers on a pulse-pounding ride with the first installment of her new futuristic paranormal series. In the not-too-distant future, Boston is a war zone. A new drug, Destiny, keeps people in perfect physical shape while driving them insane. It’s manufactured from the hormones of preteen girls procured by the nefarious Organization. Trying to combat the tide are empath Michelle “Mac” Mackenzie of the Obermeyer Institute, which teaches “Greater-Thans” to harness their supernatural powers for good, and blacklisted former Navy SEAL Shane Laughlin. The Greater-Thans race to save the girls before the Organization discards them. While a departure from Brockmann’s romantic military suspense novels, this story does contain some of her trademark elements—a military hero, a same-sex romance between secondary characters, and sizzling connections to explore in future titles—but never feels formulaic or stale, and the drama pulls readers in from page one. Agent: Steven Axelrod, the Axelrod Agency. (Mar.)
