Nate Kenyon, 2007 finalist for the Bram Stoker Award, follows up his highly praised Bloodstone with another great read in The Reach. Sarah is a special child, with a gift that she doesn't want but which other parties are very much interested in. She's telekinetic, and a very powerful one at that, but she might also be insane or close to it. That's what Jess Chambers is brought in to figure out, as she's assigned to try and make a connection with the girl by one of her college professors. Of course Jess has no idea what Sarah is capable of, or who else is interested in her progress with the girl, and what motives they might have. From official release/information:
From back of book: Young Sarah is no ordinary girl. She's been diagnosed as schizophrenic and locked away in a children's psychiatric ward. But that's not what makes her special. She also has a very strange--and powerful--gift. Scientists have been studying Sarah's remarkable psychic power for years, enhancing it, manipulating it...twisting it into something evil. But their plans have gone horribly wrong. How much longer can they control Sarah? ANd what will happen if her powers are unleashed?
