The Grifters kidnap any metahumans living outside the Academy... like me. Only this time, they missed. ~~ It took me eighteen years to realize I wasn’t that awkward girl in the mirror. Now I’m faster than thought and crazy strong, but I’m not alone. My only path forward means classified operations, psychic abilities, and war against a brutal enemy, the Grifters. When they kidnapped my best friend, my war began. I just hope I’m on the right side.
K.A. Parkinson, Author of “The Chosen Chronicles” says: “Thorne does an amazing job showing the complexity of war: the who-is-right and who-is-wrong when both sides have desires that make sense, the pain it inflicts upon generations, the search for truth, and the inner-battle we all must face when choosing which side we will and should fight for... I highly, HIGHLY, recommend this book.”
Ryan Freeman, Author of “The Grey Isle Tale” says: “Relevant. Personal. Unique.”

For centuries, a covert organization of metahumans called the Academy has protected unaware civilians from the Grifters, creatures whose humanity is as deformed as their craggy faces. I’d spent eighteen years ignorant of either group, and of their endless war. Then the Grifters found me.
The Academy whisked me away to safety, and we waited for the danger to pass. Only it didn’t. The Grifters, too stupid to know or too cruel to care that I’d left, kidnapped my best friend instead.
It won’t take them long to figure out their mistake, but I’m not going to give them the opportunity. Finding Kara means grueling training at the Academy—a sequestered hub of classified operations, psychic powers, and fighting creatures that should only exist in nightmares. We have the weapons, the technology, the brains. The Academists are strong, but Grifters are stronger. They can’t even feel pain. But we can, and Grifters are the perfect outlet for releasing that pain.
The Trace is the first book in the young adult trilogy “Whitewashed,” following Ella Kepler, a nascent metahuman whose strength and speed is matched only by the enemies set against her.
