Prologue

Excerpt from a recent lecture by Dr. Rubel Vinta of the University of Solara on The Ethics of Exploratory Research to Other Worlds:

Scientists often disagree on the universe, but one thing they hold to be true: the universe, known and unknown, is vast and wholly uncharted.

Apparent Power: Book One of the DiaZem Series
by Dacia Arnold


A dormant gene awakens... And so does a rising world government. Valerie Russell is the key. Does she save her husband and son? Or humanity? Buy a copy!

Chapter One

The electricity flew from her fingers to the shower door handle. Valerie Russell yanked her hand back. The shock had not hurt, but the burst of light caught her off guard. She reached again, slowly. This time, nothing happened, and she stepped into the shower. The water flowing over her face was satisfying in that it woke her senses far better than her alarm. Startled out of her thoughts by her husband clearing his throat, she took a breath to tell him what had just happened when he cut her off.
