Dirk and his friends have spent their entire lives in hiding because of their racial identities. Now they must make a dangerous journey into the past with the hope of restoring the world's natural timeline and dissolving their engineered society. Each of them has special powers-Nicci, the African Traveler, manipulates time; Mateo, the Hispanic Metamorph, alters his shape; Keiko, the Asian Empath, heals with her hands; and Dirk, the Caucasian Psyche, invades others' minds-that they will use to conquer The Merger.

From the Publisher:

From the Inside Flap:

Four exceptional teens from four different races pose a singular threat to the worlds most sinister secret: The Merger.

Nicci, the African Traveler, manipulates the physical limits of time.

Mateo, the Hispanic Metamorph, alters his shape to become what he imagines.

Keiko, the Asian Empath, heals with the mere touch of her hands.

Dirk, the Caucasian Telepath, invades, fortifies, battles, and joins the mind of anyone he chooses.

Born into a world that has eliminated every physical and historical trace of racial identity, Dirk and his friends have spent their entire lives in hiding. Now, they must make a dangerous journey into the past with the hope of restoring the worlds natural timeline and dissolving their engineered society. But someone is waiting for them--hiding in the folds of history. Someone powerful. Someone dangerous. Someone . . . with a lot to lose.

Book Description Pelican Publishing Co, United States, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Building upon the success of This Side of Paradise, which won the 2001 Hal Clement Award for Best New Science Fiction Novel for Young Adults, Steven Layne has written another gripping tale featuring teens battling evil forces. In Mergers, the sinister antagonist is the mastermind behind an engineered society that has wiped away all traces of race. He is intent on destroying Dirk and his friends, who have spent their entire lives in hiding because of their racial identities. Each has extraordinary powers--Nicci, the African Traveler, manipulates time; Mateo, the Hispanic Metamorph, alters his shape; Keiko, the Asian Empath, heals with her hands; and Dirk, the Caucasian Telepath, invades others minds. In this cautionary tale, the themes of loyalty, leadership, and identity are all called into question as Dirk and his friends struggle to conquer The Merger. When they take a dangerous journey into the past with the hope of restoring the world s natural timeline, each of them must struggle with their own inadequacies and deal with all-too-human failings, despite their special powers. Mergers riveting plot and supernatural characters will keep teens engaged while reminding them of each individual s potential to change the world. Seller Inventory # AAS9781589805385
