In 'The Power', the world is a recognizable place: there's a rich Nigerian boy who lounges around the family pool, a foster kid whose religious parents hide their true nature, an ambitious American politician, a tough London girl from a tricky family. But then a vital new force takes root and flourishes, causing their lives to converge with devastating effect. Teenage girls and women now have immense physical power - with a flick of their fingers, they can cause agonizing pain and even death. And, with this small twist of nature, everything changes drastically.
