She and Kyle have been close for a long time...almost lovers. But Kyle is afraid that if he pushes her, he'll have his heart broken and lose his best friend. When Briana challenges him to a swim across the lake, she's injured in a horrific accident, but she discovers a mysterious substance in an underwater cave that saves her life. What seems to be a magical yet harmless "power drug" invokes superhuman abilities, and Briana soon becomes dependent on it for her very survival. When two government agents learn of the discovery, they will stop at nothing to find the source and turn Briana into a human experiment. Is Kyle willing to risk everything to protect his love?
Readers of all ages will enjoy this gripping, fast-paced story.

Usually when yo browse through the free section you get some lookers. This was one of them; but I have to say it actually kept me content until the end. I hope the second book is just as good45
Like he says, once i started reading, I couldn't put it down55
I downloaded it thinking I'd most likely read a few pages and not bother. Sometimes you can be completely surprised, I didn't stop reading until it was over. I am NOT a big reader so let's just leave it at I will be reading more of Mike Wells.35
