​Paperback - $12.95


In the year 2086, three friends, Virgil, Haley, and Cameron, are prisoners in Purgatory. After a nuclear war on Earth, the remaining humans now inhabit IO, a moon orbiting Jupiter. The inhabitants of Purgatory are told they have a deadly virus and must be quarantined - but Virgil knows the truth: there is no virus.

The 124 children in Purgatory have unique gifts: Virgil has telekinesis, Haley can manipulate sound waves, and Cameron can heal others. Determined to escape their prison, the three friends hatch a daring plan. Will they make it out of Purgatory? How powerful are they? And how is the mysterious Marcus Raine connected to it all?
