Eric was a ticking time bomb and he knew it. The last two years had brought about enemies that were proving to be formidable and persistent. When he blew up and hit Greg, he knew he went too far and try as he might, he couldn’t contain his temper completely. How could he when people were dead set to hurt his inner circle and more often than not they targeted his talented little sister Kate? When a new foe reared its pretty head he used his metaphysical skills to test his rival. Unfortunately metaphysics had nothing on chemistry.

This book is the sequel to Momentum which is the sequel to Synergy.

Seventeen years earlier…
Eric Thomas sat on his knees as he colored his picture. He was very good at it, if he had to say sohimself and he often did. Better than his twin Matt. Both were better than the other kids in preschool.“What are you drawing?” His mother asked looking over his shoulder.“Our new family.” He stated proudly. Taking the pink crayon he added a bow to the baby’s head.In the drawing were his parents, Matt, Eric, Brian who was standing because he would be old enough towhen the baby arrived and a baby stroller with the prettiest little girl smiling happily inside.Matt peeped up to see what the hubbub was about. “We’re having another boy, dummy. Dadsaid.” He pushed Eric’s shoulder and almost caused him to draw where he didn’t want to. It incited atussle and their three-month pregnant mother pulled them apart, as usual.“Boys!” Their imposing father hollered. “Your mother has a baby and another on the way. Stopacting like animals.” Luckily he was feeding Brian in his arms keeping his temper in check.“Katherine Ann is a girl.” Eric huffed out as he pulled away from Matt. He wrote his nameexpertly on his masterpiece. Matt and Eric were the first in their class to write their names. Matt wastechnically first but Eric right behind him. It was easier for Matt since two of the letters were the same.“What a stupid name?” Matt taunted. “Even if we have a sister, you aren’t going to call her that.”Matt had named Brian. Their parents said Eric could name their next child pending their approval.Eric only glared at Matt. “You may call her Kate and she’s my sister.”Their mother laughed. “And if it turns out to be a boy?”“She isn’t a boy.” He rolled his eyes. Grandma Ann had told them the truth. Then he stuck histongue at Matt who knew their mother was going to have a daughter and was just being difficult because hewas cranky.That time Matt started the bout and Ron handed Brian over to their mother. After ending their scuffle he marched them to their room where they were ordered to stay until dinner.“Eric?” Matt said lying on his bed.“What?” He was still mad.“She’s a girl. Grandma’s never wrong.” He rolled over to face Eric. “And I like the name Kate.”Sometimes he wondered what it would be like without a twin and then sometimes it wasn’t so bad.

Self Control or Lack Thereof 
Eric woke up early to take his morning run. He was working on managing his temper and regular exercise evened his mood. It wasn’t as if he blew up over small things. It was that big things kepthappening to his family in more rapid and increasing intensity. More often than not, his younger sister Kate was put in the most danger and it was that helplessness that fueled his uncontrolled rage.He listened to the rhythm of his feet as he passed through the Santa Katrina neighborhood in hisusual route. His pet German Shepherd Zeus kept up easily. The steady pace and the quickened heart ratecleared his mind to better sort through the problems he faced. A road led down into the park. He reachedout mentally to feel other people’s presence. Sensing he had enough privacy, he sped up to faster than mosthumans but not too much for Zeus to keep up.Eric’s family was very gifted even among people with metaphysical skills. He was born withtelekinesis, telepathy, empathy and deterrence. None of it manifested until he was in high school over sixyears earlier. Telekinesis was from his father’s side and the others were from his mother. His identicaltwin Matt and his younger brother Brian were born with the same gifts. Kate, who had a different father,didn’t originally have telekinesis but had two others. She could communicate on a fundamental level withanimals. More amazingly she was able to share dreams with people. Not only would they wake upremembering any conversations that took place but they could also pass things through. It was even possible to bring the person through which was how he rescued her weeks earlier.Even though they were born with their respective glitches, Kate had an extremely well developedsense of empathy. She found that by utilizing it with other gifts she could teach people her skills and learnfrom them if they used their skill while they were connected. They shared their gifts evenly and learnedothers from friends and some not so friendly people. Eric and Matt had shared as well but only with eachother. They had a strong connection as twins. His younger brother Brian had some minimal success withhis dorm-mate but Kate had to reinforce the lesson.From Kate’s boyfriend Greg, they learned to black out people’s senses and to see through other  people’s eyes. Greg’s cousin Meg, who was also Kate’s best friend and Brian’s girlfriend, had taught Kateto enhance her hearing. It was a gift only the girls could do for some reason. Kate said it wasn’t in men’snature to listen and that kept them from picking it up. Father Francis, the head master at Kate’s Catholic
